About the event

Are you an artist, maker, or creator looking for a fun and unique way to spread kindness and share your talent with others? Look no further than Art Drop Chamblee! Join us during the week of April 21st to April 27th in hiding your art for others to find and enjoy. It's like a scavenger hunt mixed with art collecting, and it's all happening in public places around Chamblee. Sign up now and use the hashtag #artdropchamblee during the event week to start sharing your creations with the world! FAQ: What is an Art Drop? An art drop mixes a random act of kindness, a scavenger hunt, and art collecting. A creator makes a piece of art small enough to carry away and hides it somewhere in public. The creator uses the hashtag #artdropchamblee and posts picture hints on Instagram. Finders use the hints to find the art. Finders can take a selfie or just a picture of the art while tagging the creator and using the same hashtag so that everyone knows it has been found. How do I become a creator? Sign up here! You can use your own supplies or check the box to pick up a kit including a 6"x6" wooden blank surface. We ask that creators put finders’ instructions with the art. Depending on the weather and your materials, you may want to leave the art in a container or plastic bag. What kind of art can I drop? A good rule of thumb is that a child should easily carry away your item. For example, your art should be non-toxic, lightweight, and in one piece. Your items should not contain vulgar or harmful language or imagery. Your item should not be overtly political (no campaigning). All types of art are welcome! Fiber, painting, mosaic, printmaking, decoration, etc. How do I find the dropped art? Starting on Sunday, April 21st, keep your eye on the @chamblee_public_art page on Instagram, where we will be reposting any creators who use the hashtag #artdropchamblee. Once the hashtag is used, you are welcome to go and find the dropped art! Why? This community scavenger hunt has been created through a partnership of Public Arts and the Parks and Rec teams for GA Cities Week to get people creating, get them out in the parks, and engage the community! What is GA Cities Week? GA Cities Week is a yearly event promoted by the Georgia Municipal Association to Share information about the valuable services cities provide to residents, including an inside look into city operations and how cities positively impact their quality of life.

Ensure your account is not private during this week so that people can see your hint and find your dropped art! Don't forget to include your Instagram handle and #artdropchamblee on the back of the art so finders know what to do when they see it.
