Arvada Artist Initiative in the Spotlight: Art Drop Arvada
Art Drop Arvada fosters a community of artists and art treasure hunters in Arvada so that we can all celebrate our local art scene together. They do this by hiding local art in public and community spaces throughout our beautiful city. Each piece is from a local artist and is free to whoever finds it first. Art Drop Arvada encourages locals to get out and explore their city, connects artists with art-lovers. Join the scavenger hunt!
Working with the City of Arvada, Art Drop Arvada holds a monthly Park Art Drop to highlight a local park that is underutilized or unknown to the community. Hunters who find free local art during a Park Art Drop also receive a copy of "Art in Your Park: a Guidebook for Getting Creative in Your Neighborhood," which prompts readers to respond artistically to their local park and use the natural environment and inspiration for creation.
