South Africa’s biggest, one night only, inner-city art exhibition and sale to raise funds for education-focused charities. Night of a 1000 Drawings is an empowerment project that culminates in a one-night-only, massive inner-city art sale to raise funds for deserving causes. Buyers will be spoilt for choice with doodles, scribbles, graffiti, sketches, photographs,  watercolour and oil paintings, experimental and conceptual works, all on sale and going for a song. At R150 a piece, you could get your hands on a one-of-a-kind, original work by tomorrow’s big stars, or something beautiful to make you smile.
