Newfields is partnering with Sun King Brewing to bring you Monster Drawing Rally, an art-making spectacle featuring more than 30 local artists. These artists work in three, one-hour rounds at 1:30, 2:30, and 3:30 pm to produce as many drawings as possible in their allotted time. Each completed drawing is available for sale as soon as it hits the wall (first come-first served) for a flat price of $35.
The drawings make a great holiday gift. All proceeds support ARTx programming.
Must be 21 years or older.
