Scrawl opened on Feb. 9 with blank white walls. Over the past month and a half almost 50 artists, working individually or in teams, have been engaged in a sprawling, scrawling site-specific drawing. Inspired by the Surrealists "exquisite corpse" concept in which each participant adds something to a drawing or literary work without knowing what has come before or will follow, the SCRAWLers are creating their drawings without—in theory—awareness or regard for the imagery around them.

Scrawl will have it’s "BIG Reveal" this Friday, celebrated with a "VIP Cocktail Hour" from 5—6 p.m. (details and tickets are available for $10 on the Artspace Web site) and the "BIG Reveal" closing reception from 6—8 p.m., which is free and open to the public.

Visiting this past Saturday about a week before the unveiling, the walls had come alive with a dazzle of different drawings and designs. Here below, some details of the drawings and some images of artists still at work.
