The Cleveland Print Room is pleased to present Exquisite Corpse, a silent auction fundraiser featuring works created by nationally recognized artists from Cleveland and beyond in collaboration to create exquisite corpses + live drawing event in the spirit of the Surrealist game of the same name.
Presented with the generous assistance of sponsors ArtEtc., Dodd Camera, Process Creative Studios and Postcard.com, the admission for the event is $5 for anyone over the age of 12.
Exquisite Corpse was originally enjoyed as a parlor game invented by the Surrealists for which artists collaborated on drawings without seeing each others’ contributions, celebrating the unexpected. For the Surrealists, this tapped into their interest in a collective unconscious.
Bidding on the Exquisite Corpse works will begin at the event on Saturday, July 18th at 6pm with larger murals on the gallery walls starting at $100. Smaller unique and unpredictable collaborative creations will be added to the wall as they are drawn and then sold at the event for $75. Funds raised through the event will support the future growth and programming of the Print Room as it continues to provide a dedicated space for photographers to exhibit in Cleveland.
DJ JP Sputnik will be providing the music at this event. There will also be a cash bar for refreshments.
Live Event: Saturday, July 18, 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Artists drawing: 6:00 – 8:30 p.m.
(free for children age 12 and under/children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult)
Work Remains on view through Monday, July 20, 2013. Work not sold after that date will be posted on our website for sale.
CPR will also feature a section where children and families may sit, draw and display their work on the wall for the evening.
