Free Art Fridays

Friday Funday has a whole new meaning now that I’ve discovered Free Art Fridays.

Last Friday I spent the day hunting for free art around the city with my friend Janin. Free art you wonder? Yes. Imagine a cross between serial stalker meets scavenger hunt for art.

Janin, who is a lover of the arts got me to join a group on Facebook where different local artists prep you for the weeks hidden pieces. They basically create a piece of art and give it up for free. They hide them at any given place in Miami, take a photo of it or give you a clue as to where to find it on the Facebook page and the hunt is on!

Janin & I were super excited for this and took the hunt extremely serious. Our game face was on -sort of. It was like we were on the Amazing Race. Like Khole Kardashian and her ‘cortadito’, we just HAD to find the stuff.

Luckily, our day was a success & we found two awesome pieces left by the Registered Artist in “el parque de los locos” appropriately named considering Janin & I are two locas whenever we’re together.

Check out our sweet pieces!

LOST IN WYNWOOD PROJECT.

As most of you know, it’s Art Basel time in Miami. But if you can’t afford to scoop up any high-priced pieces at these events, I’ve got something you might be interested in.

Local artists Wase One & Tony Diamond have created over 100 original cigarette boxes and are scattering them around the Wynwood area throughout Art Basel. If you spot one of these  uniquely painted boxes, it’s yours! You can take a little piece of Art Basel home with you for FREE! How cool is that?

These guys are also taking things a step further. If you happen to find one with a special label, you’ll win an original canvas! It’s sorta like Willy Wonka meets smoker-art scavenger hunt. If you find one of these, you MUST contact the guys within 24-hours of your finding to qualify for your free canvas. They can be reached through Instagram & Twitter at @ithinkyourenew & @tonydiamondMIA. Don’t forget to hashtag #lostinwynwood!

The cigarette boxes can be found on trees, fences, windowsills, and any surface at about eye level. They’re placing them in the area around the Wynwood Walls and are wandering through some of the side streets.

Good luck & Happy hunting!
