Denver Arts & Venues asks for artistic participants
Denver Arts & Venues calls for local artists to delight and surprise Denver residents, and create positive connections through art by committing to participate in World Art Drop Day Tuesday, Sept. 4. World Art Drop Day occurs annually on the first Tuesday of September and was conceived by Utah’s Jake Parker with the goal of connecting people to one another, and generating random bonds between strangers through the act of creating and giving. Participation is simple: first, artists commit to participate by filling out the online form and creating a small, inexpensive piece or two to share on Art Drop Day. Then, on Tuesday, Sept. 4, they hide their art around town. Next, they drop hints and clues on social media so people can find the hidden works, and finally the artists watch and wait for someone to discover their creations. The public can participate in the fun and search for art by following #artdropday and #artdropdenver on social media, or by joining the Art Drop Denver Facebook group.
