Ely Center of Contemporary Art and Artspace present
A Live Drawing Event & Fundraiser

Artspace will kickoff their 30th Anniversary Alumni Reunion weekend and celebration with a Monster Drawing Rally at the Ely Center of Contemporary Art

Join us and see artwork being created by over 40 artists in front of an enthusiastic crowd, then purchase drawings on site for $50 each.

This will be the first event hosted by Artspace where artists in the Greater New Haven community will be invited to participate to share and showcase their artistic talents. Over the course of the night, artists at all stages of their careers take shifts to draw for an hour in front a live audience, bringing their private studio practices to the public. As spectators spy on the creative process, sketches morph into full-fledged artworks. Artists will then donate works to be bought the night of the event for one flat price. There will be ticketed bourbon tasting food available for purchase at Farm Belly’s Food Truck. Throughout the night Dave Coons will DJ tunes to set the mood. All art lovers, supporters, and enthusiast are welcomed to this free event. All proceeds will go to support programming at the Ely Center of Contemporary Art and Artspace New Haven.

This is a a high energy event taking place around the country and we are excited to bring it to New Haven and to host it at The Ely Center of Contemporary Art.

Great food, craft beer and music!!  All proceeds go to support programming at Ely Center and Artspace. Help support two great art venues in New Haven!!
