Join 16 illustrators of the Haute école des arts du Rhin for a DRAW JAM, a collective sketch night & book signing! Enjoy a glass of wine, sketch to live models in surrealist costume, and then hang your creations on the walls of the French Embassy for a collective pop-up exhibition.

Curated by Alexandra Zsigmond, the art director of the New York Times' opinion section, this event is a rare opportunity to meet these young illustrators in person, discover their handmade books and prints, and draw with them side by side. Artists of all skill levels are welcome, and should come prepared with their own art materials.
Chairs, tables and refreshments will be provided.

With: Marion Fayolle, Simon Roussin, Mayumi Otero, Bénédicte Muller, Marine Rivoal, Baptiste Alchourroun, Lucie Larousse, Julie Etrivert, Alexis Beauclair, Quentin Duckit, Caroline Gamon, Antoine Maille Hard, Margaux Othats, Raphael Urwiller, Fanny Blanc, Eugène Riousse.

In English and French. Free and open to the public. No RSVP necessary!

This event is part of "Fit to Print", an exhibition on editorial illustration at the Society Of Illustrators and at the The New York Times. Additional events will take place at the MOCCA Arts Festival.

 



Fit to Print brings together a selection of art and editorial illustration created by 17 graduates of the Haute école des arts du Rhin (H.E.A.R.) in Strasbourg, one of the preeminent art schools in France. First presented at the Tomi Ungerer Museum in Strasbourg from January — April 2016, the exhibition debuts in New York in two parts — one at the Society of Illustrators, and another at The New York Times.
