SECRET MOVING MURAL

project: #11

location: The Streets of Reno.

date: 7/1 – 7/31. 2016

type: collaborative sharpie drawing. Scavenger Hunt.

 

THE SECRET IS OUT.

The biggest little city holds secrets and hidden treasures around every corner. Take a walk around the streets. Pay attention to the walls, the sidewalks, the signs, the people. Pay attention. You just might find something worth looking at. 

THE HUNT.

It was the month of hot July. Art was on the minds of everyone. Sidewalks and parks became the hip scene. Melodies and wet paint  heightened senses on every corner. As I watched the creativity unfold I realized an artist could blend in with this crowd. I did just that.

The people. The creators. Would not have to search far to collaborate… but they would have to search smart. I was here. I was there. ready for the urban art hunters to get their hands dirty.

THE TASK. 

GRAB A SHARPIE AND MAP OUT HOW YOU GOT HERE. USE BASIC SYMBOLS AND LINES. YOU MAY CROSS OVER OTHER’S ROUTES.

 

LAYING DOWN TRACKS. 

The project finished with 4+ Alley Art spottings and creatings. Sharpie’s ran dry and the board was a chaotic mess of direction. But under closer inspection I do believe you can begin to see tracks. Tracks telling stories. Tracks guiding. Tracks following. Look close. You will see the beginning of something.

What? Well, we will have to lay down some more tracks for that answer.
