"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 celebrate Free Art Friday, we'll have our studio open all day and offer a plethora of art supplies and a few good ideas* . Stop and make space for a moment of creativity in your busy day and join this global art movement!
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 today (and on the first Friday of every 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!
* Our Free Art Friday events are free of charge, but we encourage donations to help us keep our supply shelves stocked! We'll have our donation jar at the door for cash, or you can make credit card donations online or in person. We greatly appreciate your help to keep Montclair a vibrant, creative, inclusive place!
