To celebrate Lumpen Radio’s second anniversary we’re throwing a big party- The Lumpen Drawing Rally! At this live drawing event and fundraiser, dozens of artists will work side by side. Come meet some of the smartest weirdest local artists, chat with them as they draw, drink some beer and have fun with the creative process. Artists will be taking shifts, making sketches that will morph into full-fledged artworks – immediately available for sale for just $50 each. Drawings make perfect gifts! All proceeds directly to support Public Media Institute’s efforts to expand Lumpen Radio - WLPN 105.5 FM’s reach to all of Chicago!

Get your tickets now on Eventbrite to save money at the door!

The Monster Drawing Rally Model was developed by the 50 year old Bay Area artist-run gallery Southern Exposure as an open source model for community fundraising/friendraising. Since its inception almost 20 years ago, the model has been used all over the country by tons of artist run spaces, museums, and other community organizations. We think this will be the first drawing rally in chicago, though :) Correct us if we’re wrong!
