The MDR is a drawing event and fundraiser featuring more than 36 artists.  The event consists of three 1-hour rounds that each feature 12 artists drawing simultaneously.  Part performance art, part laboratory, part art bazaar, the MDR is an incredible opportunity to go behind the studio walls and watch some of your favorite Spokane artists create original drawings from a blank page.  As each round is completed, the drawings will be immediately hung up and made available for a fixed price of $50.  If more than one person wishes to purchase an original drawing, the winner will be determined by drawing straws.


On the first floor, there will be a silent auction of the work of several celebrity artists who have created monsters ahead of time in their own studios.  Bidding will occur throughout the evening with the auction closing at 8:30 pm.  Past silent auction artists included Ric Gendron, Mel McCuddin, Kay O’Rourke and Dara Harvey.


There will be live music, and food and drink throughout the evening.


The proceeds from the MDR will go to support children’s drawing and painting programs at the Spokane Art School.
