Artists Go Wild At The Monster Drawing Rally
The community showed its support (and its money) for local artists at Sunday's Monster Drawing Rally at the Center for the Arts in Eagle Rock. About 500 people attended the non-profit Outpost for Contemporary Arts' event, which raised $12,000 and sold 100 paintings.
The multi-talented Highland Park-based indie popsters Artichoke played a bumblebee-themed set just after a few of their members participated in the rally by drawing up a storm in one hour. While artists did their thing, spectators scarfed down pulled pork sliders from Oinkster and drank up Fat Tire & Skinny Dip beer.
"There's something about watching the creative process," said live painter Max Neutra. He said he usually paints in blocks of five to 6six hours, and working within one hour side-by-side with other artists during the rally allows participants to "experience so many different things."
A handful of paintings not sold at the event will be available for $50 at Outpost's headquarters, 1268 Ave 50, Los Angeles, 90042; check their website for updates to see which works are for sale.
