Flood the streets with art!

Posted by & filed under Community, Life.

Are you up for a random act of kindness the day after Thanksgiving? For the third year, Scott Wong, an artist in Wisconsin, is encouraging people to make an art piece and leave it in a public place for someone to find, pick up, take home and love. Let’s see how much art and love we can flood into our Eugene/Springfield community!

Last year, more than 6,000 individual artists left art in public places. This happened on every continent on our planet. Many artists dropped more than one piece, and it’s estimated that as many as 12,000 pieces were left to be found.

We’re all excited about participating in the event this year, and thought you might like to do it too.

Make sure to tag your art so people know it’s up for grabs. I’ve made a tag that you can print out and use if you’d like. And, if you want to share a photo of your art, we’d love to see it on our FaceBook page, use the hagtag #floodthestreetswithart.

PS: Remember, this is an anonymous act of kindness. You likely won’t ever know who picked up your art or what they did with it. Just know that you are putting your art out there and don’t fret about what happens to it. Your act helps build community. Thank you!

It's only fair to share...Share on Facebook

A native New Yorker, I've loved crafting with junk since childhood. My art is typically a mix of reuse materials, paint, yarn, and humor. I currently collaborate with other artists to design unexpected and participatory art experiences. Always excited about getting more art into my community, I've joined forces with Eug-Art 404, a cultural activation project in the River Road & Santa Clara areas of Eugene, Oregon.
