Free Art Fridays

  • The Creativity Caravan 101 Walnut Street Montclair, NJ, 07042 United States (map)

On Friday afternoons we'll be popping up with our Craftcycle and a fistful of art supplies somewhere in Montclair where we'll encourage you to stop and make space for a moment of creativity in your busy day. Sometimes we'll be in our studio, sometimes we'll roll around town and partner with another local Montclair business. Locations will change but you can always stop by our studio at 101 Walnut Street to find out where we are!

Then on the first Friday of every month, we encourage people to join us as we join the global Free Art Friday movement: 

"Free Art Friday is an art scavenger hunt open to all. Since the phrase was coined about 10 years ago by a British artist named My Dog Sighs, the event has popped up in cities around the world, including, now, New York.

Participating artists post pictures of their hidden pieces on Instagram. It’s up to the “scavengers” to use visual or textual hints — a street sign or a piece of a mural — to figure out the location of the work and get there and grab it before someone else does." ~Ashley Maas, The New York Times

To participate in Free Art Friday Montclair place any artwork (by yourself, or it can be by someone else with proper credit) in a location of your choosing in Montclair on the first Friday of the month, take a photo of it and upload with enough information to help someone find it via Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #FAFMTC Join our Facebook page and share what happens!
