"Open drawing is:
a work study 1-2 Art students
a pizza party
an ad campaign for Open Drawing
a weekly evening of drawing open to the Institute
disposable, stealable
a retort to relevant administrative bullshit 
ink on newsprint
Wednesdays from 7-9PM
a proposal for another kind of art making
collaborative, selfish, indulgent, introspective
often censored/sometimes forgotten
scattered around the greater Los Angeles area
a visual barometer for current events 
a loose space to sketch ideas 
a study in provisional art installation
Wednesdays from 6-9PM 
a drawing that says 'Open Drawing' on it
a political discussion
storytelling hour"
