Starting July 9, pieces of art will be hidden across neighborhoods in Dallas. These artworks are free for taking once they’re found according to a Dallas Morning News article by. They say,
“For five Saturdays starting July 9, a series of works of art will be hidden in neighborhoods across Dallas, free for the taking. All you have to do is find them.
The rules for Art Quest, the latest program from Dallas-based public arts organization Aurora, are simple: Every Saturday morning from July 9 through Aug. 6, clues for finding a piece of art will be published on Aurora’s Instagram page and in its newsletter. Each of the artworks will be hidden in a different pocket of the city; the July 9 “quest” will take place in Jubilee Park just north of Fair Park. The other four locations are Bachman Lake, Pleasant Grove, Bonton and Vickery Meadow.”
The works of art are all 3D printed and have certificates of authenticity with them according to a CultureMap Dallas article. They say,
“The first person to find the work of art, each of which is being developed through the use of 3D printing technologies, can collect it on the spot, along with a certificate of authenticity and the opportunity to meet the artist.
Commissioned artists include Victor Enam, Heather Gorham, Brooks Oliver, Andrew Scott, and Eric Trich. The areas of the city where the art will be placed include Bonton Neighborhood, Vickery Meadow, Bachman Lake, Pleasant Grove, and Jubilee Park.”
Those who are interested in participating are encouraged to follow @dallasAURORA and #AuroraArtQuest on Instagram, subscribe to AURORA’s newsletter, and check the AURORA Instagram page every Saturday morning for clues.
