Sprawl! Drawing Outside the Lines

July 18–October 4, 2015

A sequel to the celebrated 2013 exhibition Drawing Inside the Perimeter, this second installment brought together a diverse selection of over one hundred recently acquired drawings by artists working both inside and outside the Atlanta perimeter.

Following up on the High Museum’s successful 2013 exhibition of drawings by Atlanta-based artists titled Drawing Inside the Perimeter, this exhibition presents more than one hundred drawings acquired by the High between June 2013 and May 2015.

The exhibition acknowledges drawing as an independent artistic discipline with a long, rich history, one that represents a manner of thinking, composing, writing, or problem-solving among a plurality of contemporary art practices. Rather than considering drawing only as a preliminary stage in the process of creating a finished work in another medium, the exhibition reflects on drawing as a framework for the construction of knowledge and the communication of ideas.

Drawings in the exhibition act as a roadmap to the great diversity of artistic production in the Atlanta metro area, demonstrating the broad diversity of our region by expanding the reach of Drawing Inside the Perimeter to include twice as many artists, many who live and work outside the perimeter in outlying locales such as Athens, Columbus, Fairburn, Lawrenceville, Morrow, Smyrna, and elsewhere.

Works in the exhibition have been acquired through the Antinori Fund, which was established by Susan and Ron Antinori to support and advance artistic excellence among artists living and working in the Atlanta metropolitan area.

Monster Drawing Rally

Saturday, September 12, 2015 from 1 to 4 p.m.

Visitors were invited to get in on the action and watch Georgia artists at work at the High’s second Monster Drawing Rally

In conjunction with the exhibition Sprawl! Drawing Outside the Lines and made possible by the Gudmund Vigtel Works on Paper Fund, approximately 75 local artists—many of whom are featured in Sprawl!—made art live in the High’s Robinson Atrium. The works were available for sale that day only for $75 each.

Working in three one-hour shifts, each group of artists produced original drawings available for purchase as they are completed. If more than one attendee wanted to purchase a particular work, the winner was determined by the luck of the draw.

The concept of the Monster Drawing Rally was originally developed by Southern Exposure in San Francisco. DJ Teknology spun tunes. BINDERS© donated supplies for the event, and participating artists also be brought their own supplies.

Below is a current list of artists who participated in Monster Drawing Rally:
