Last summer I had a plan to hide a piece of min art everyday somewhere in Tacoma. I did hide several tiny pieces and it was a blast. People that found them often connected to me and let me know how it brought a bright spot to their day. I was equally intrigued by the pieces that I never heard from again. They’ve gone on an adventure and I may never know what became of them. My art out in the world, doing it’s own thing. I loved it.
However, I wasn’t prepared. I was making the pieces as I went and investing more time in the pieces than expected. Even the time taken to hide them was more work than I thought I’d signed up for. So the project fizzled out pretty quickly.
I haven’t forgotten about it though. I even miss doing it. It was one of my favorite art activities ever. So, I’m gearing up to do it again the summer of 2018. This time I’m making them in advance. As they’re completed I’ll often post photos to social media. You can also catch me making them live on Twitch.
Just another reason to get excited for summer.
