“RED LIGHT!” in the Garden…

"RED LIGHT!" 24"x24" acrylic on canvas

It was a gorgeous morning in Jacksonville this past Saturday. The sky was a brilliant blue, the sun was shining, the flowers were in bloom and the free art was amazing. The 2nd ever JAX ART HUNT (JAH) was a huge success with the help of Arbus Magazine, Art in Strange Places, the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens, & of course, all  the generous artists who donated their work.

The Cummer was having a free day on Saturday and they graciously opened their gardens to us as the starting point for our hunt. The energy was awesome and we got a chance to see some very excited folks as they stumbled across some free art. I decided to hide my “RED LIGHT!” painting in the gardens, which is the sidekick to my “GREEN LIGHT!” painting. I will be strategically hiding “GREEN LIGHT!” at next month’s JAH (rumor has it, that the next JAH may be held in St. Augustine! That will be confirmed asap. )

"Red Light!" "Green Light!" 2 panel, each 24"x24" acrylic on canvas

The last piece of free art was hid in San Marco at Pulp, where  some young lacrosse players stumbled across the fabulous work donated by Brian Gray. It was an awesome moment to see the looks on their faces when they realized it was their lucky day.

I can’t wait for April’s JAH, it’s going to be fun and bigger than ever. Stay tuned for more details as we find different ways to spread the power of art to our community 🙂
