The Arts Council of Park City & Summit County and Kimball Art Center present:
The annual Monster Drawing Rally, which is an event that allows artists to interact with spectators, collectors, and other local artists. The organizations are now accepting artist applications for the event, which will be held outside on July 10th at Kimball Art Center’s new location at the YARD, 1251 Kearns Blvd.
This year marks the fifth annual Monster Drawing Rally, and one of the first in-person creative programming events in Summit County in over a year! Last year, due to COVID-19, the organizations had to pivot to produce an online event called Monster Drawing Rally // Digital + Rewired, instead of hosting their usual live art fundraiser. While the 2020 virtual event was very different than our typical energetic in-person event, the Arts Council and the KAC felt fortunate to experiment with online programming and serve artists during a particularly challenging time.
“We are thrilled to bring this creative, inspiring, and energetic event back in 2021,” noted Arts Council’s executive director Jocelyn Scudder. “This is one of our favorite events of the year, and has come to be a community favorite as well. We encourage both emerging and established artists to apply—it’s a wonderful opportunity for local artists to create, network with fellow creatives, and meet potential new collectors.”
The event will look a bit different this year, but will maintain the majority of its unique aspects that make it so special.
