Atlanta! Arbor Day Weekend is upon us and the Champion Art Hunt as well!
For the entire weekend, April 27th-29th, art will be hidden around the city at specific Champion Trees. For all of us normal-folk, Champion Trees are the largest trees of their kind in the city!
Wait there’s more!… you, your family, and friends are going to find it.
Here’s what you need to know:
Use the Tree’s Atlanta Champion Tree Google Map, located here.
Free Art, thanks to our ATL street art community, can be found at the trees marked by a green tree icon.
If you click the tree, you will find a description and location of the tree.
As you venture through your ATL green spaces looking for free art, you should maintain communication through twitter. Artists and the GreenspacesATL team will be tagging post with both #championarthunt and #FAFATL. Search these for hints and updates for located art through the hunt weekend.
What should you do when you find some amazing local art like this piece?
There will be a tag with instructions attached to the art, but basically you will need to take a picture of yourself and the art and post it to Twitter, tagging @greenspacesATL and the artist if you are familiar with the work. Also, include #FAFATL and #championarthunt, so the community can follow the hunt throughout the weekend.
In our recent newsletter, we told ATL that art will be available Friday morning, 4/27. This is still correct, but don’t worry all of you hard workers, art will continue to be hid throughout the weekend so that those hunting on Saturday will be able to find these great works of art as well! Yay!
REMEMBER: One rule! Only take ONE piece of art per tree! Please… this event is to increase community involvement at our green spaces; we know the art is amazing! But everyone needs to have the opportunity to know that too!
Sign up for our newsletter. We will be posting a video describing the event later this week.
and remember… enjoy your greenspacesATL
