Monster Drawing Rally IV

July 13, 2018 @ 6:00 pm – 9:30 pm

The Museum’s popular Monster Drawing Rally returns for a fourth year of drawing under the summer stars! MDR is a drawing event and fundraiser featuring more than 75 Portland-based artists. Part performance, part laboratory, part art bazaar, the Monster Drawing Rally is an incredible opportunity to watch some of your favorite Portland artists create original drawings from a blank page. The event begins promptly at 6 p.m. in the Museum’s courtyard and consists of three one-hour rounds that each feature approximately 25 different artists drawing simultaneously. As the drawings are completed, they are immediately made available for a flat price of $35 each. If more than one person wants to purchase a particular work, the winner will be determined by drawing straws. Proceeds support free school and youth programs at the Museum.

Bring the Family!
The Museum will also feature the Li’l Monster Drawing Rally, a section where kids and families are invited to sit, draw, and display their work for the evening.


The Portland Art Museum is pleased to offer accommodations to ensure that our programs are accessible and inclusive. All spaces for this program are accessible by wheelchair. Assistive listening devices are also available for the lecture.
Please email 2-3 weeks in advance, or call 503-226-2811.
