At least thats the way it is at the Monster Drawing Rally, an annual art show held at the Southern Exposure gallery in San Francisco, where 120 artists pump out drawings and eager art lovers race to buy new original work.
According to director Courtney Fink, this years event, happening on Friday (Feb. 27), promises to be a crazy time.
She says, Its such a high energy event that we joke its like a monster truck rally. Thats how we got the name. Its a spectacle. We let the artists do whatever they want and it turns into a total frenzy.
The atmosphere at the Monster Drawing Rally is most wild when it comes down to buying a work of art.
Fink explains, People get really worked up about getting the work they want. Weve learned how to deal with people competing. We make them pick from a deck of cards and whoever gets the high card wins. Sometimes theres some shoving though. Its crazy.
