Art is everywhere. I say that all the time, but on Fridays, that’s actually a little more true because there are people in the Twin Cities hiding art in unexpected places for you to find. I’ve done it the last couple of Fridays with my zine about becoming a mother, Will There Be Smoking?. You can join too as a hider or a seeker. Read more about it in this article from the Pioneer Press:
Here’s how it works: Artists are invited to create a small piece of work, hide it somewhere in the Twin Cities, then on Friday, post photo clues on Facebook and/or Twitter. The finder is asked to post or tweet a photo to let the group know the art has found a good home.
Of course, not all of the art is found by group members. A random passer-by could just as easily snag a piece, adding to the mystery.
“There’s some joy thinking about who discovers it and thinking about where to hide it,” Wang said.
There’s a Facebook group and a hashtag to use. Keep your eyes open. The whole city is a potential hiding place for some little treasure. If that isn’t a happy thought for today, I don’t know what is. :)
