The Art Abandonment Project: Create and Share Random Acts of Art

Good Morning,

Today we're going to do something a little different. Instead of sharing five items, artists can share their items, Guerrilla style.

I found this in my my Blog Feed, originally posted by The Brooklyn Bead Goddess, I wanted to share it with you as well, and perhaps inspire fellow artists to try it out.

You may also join a group on Facebook, link provided, to share your adventure if you would like.

The book is titled and may be found on Amazon:

1. All you have to do is make a piece of art. (as simple or as elegant as you like) 

2. Write a little note on it explaining that it is a gift
Also mention that if the finder would like to share info about its fate they can contact you directly i.e. email. Then you can share the info with us if you are so inclined. Its not a bad idea to leave you're web address contact info…you never know…you might have created a new patron. 

3. Photograph what you're leaving behind 

4. Then leave it…walk away…run…try not to get caught. 

Then on Facebook share the location and photo of your gift with the rest of us. Here's the group address: http://www.facebook.com/groups/ArtAbandonment/

Keep your fingers crossed that someone lets us know what became of it. I doubt that everyone will take the time to inform the group. A few artists have already been contacted by the "finders".

The basic idea of this Facebook group is simple:
  1. Create a piece of art
  2. Photograph the art…preferably in the location it will be left.
  3. (Optional) Leave a contact tag, so that the “finder” can get in touch with the “abandoneer” if they choose to..
  4. Post the photograph on the Art Abandonment Facebook Group
  5. Wait.  With any luck the “finder” will make contact.
  6. If contacted by the “finders,” post the response on the Art Abandonment group page
  7. Repeat.

I should mention that I do not belong to the facebook group, and do not intend to join. I thought this was a wonderful way to either promote yourself, or do something fun and different and bring a little joy to another.

Thank you for stopping in and having a look.  

The Alchemists Vessel would like to wish you a pleasant day.
