“Sprawl! Drawing Outside the Lines,” the sprawling exhibit showcasing 113 new drawings by Georgia artists in the High Museum’s permanent collection, continues through Oct. 4. If you’d like to meet some of those included in the show (and other participating Atlanta artists), while supporting future High collecting of local work, check out the “Monster Drawing Rally” from 1-4 p.m. Saturday.

The event will feature 75 artists creating drawings in the High’s Robinson Atrium, with the freshly completed works immediately available for sale for $75 each. The event also will  feature entertainment by DJ Teknology and a cash bar.

The High hosted its first Monster Drawing Rally in 2013 in conjunction with the closing of “Drawing Inside the Perimeter,” a prequel to “Sprawl!” The 2013 event raised more than $8,000, which helped the museum start to fund the acquisition of works of art featured in “Sprawl!”

Free with museum admission. 1280 Peachtree St., N.E., Atlanta. www.high.org.
