A project of the MAKESH!T collective, Public Acts of Drawing is "a real-time, art-making event that merges free-form collaboration with large-scale urban spectacle. It's taken various forms, including an impromptu session on the Minneapolis waterfront in 2012 and at the Minneapolis Convention Center Plaza during Northern Spark 2014. Participants put pen to paper alongside local artists, dignitaries and a few hundred friends. Drawers of all ages, skill levels and styles are welcome. Over the course of the night, the individual marks of many will become a vibrant lattice of interpenetrated doodles, the Hive Mind documented in graphite and ink."
