Extreme Draw On! A Community Drawing Festival Presented by The Aldrich Featuring a Special Tribute to Maurice Sendak
Extreme Draw On! expands on the award-winning Draw On! program, founded by The Aldrich in 2006, which annually involves dozens of schools, museums, libraries, businesses, and other organizations in Connecticut and around the US. The events and artist-led programs hosted by the Museum and its partners celebrate drawing and create a sense of community, while pushing the boundaries of what it means to draw.
In 2013, Extreme Draw On! coincides with Extreme Drawing, a semester-long series of exhibitions presenting an array of approaches taken by contemporary artists to push the boundaries of drawing, the most direct and universal means of visual expression. The Aldrich will be hosting a variety of drawing-inspired programs for all ages, from lectures to workshops, hands-on activities to cocktail parties.

Major program support provided by the Maurice Sendak Foundation. Additional support provided by The William Randolph Hearst Foundations, The Wadsworth Lewis Trust, and the Museum's many community partners.
