Savannah, GA Meets Operation: Bring Art to the People

So, while on a spontaneous road trip to Savannah, GA yesterday, I decided that some unsuspecting people should be on the receiving end of some free art love with 2013 YCL Art Childhood Series Calendars. From an outlet mall off 95N to the streets of historic Savannah, GA and back to the Florida Visitor Center off 95S, art love was shared one calendar at a time. That’s 12 months of free art love in every single art drop. Not too shabby.

Sharing the love of art…it’s how I roll πŸ™‚

Update: FREE Local Art for the Holidays?! Dingo Calendars and More :)

Free Art?…

That’s right, as I continue my public art/social awareness project that I like to call, OPERATION: Bring Art to the People, more people than ever are being connected to the power of art through random FREE art drops in our fabulous city and beyond. Sometimes the free art is big, sometimes it’s small, regardless of the size, it’s an original, one of a kind random act of kindness used to spread the word of how important it is to keep the arts alive in our city. My inspiration for this project came from Chicago artist, Patrick Skoff and his art scavenger hunts and now thanks to him and many other artists around the globe, the Free Art movement has become a worldwide phenomenon known as Free Art Friday, with a local chapter right her in sunny Jacksonville, FL: FAFjax. So, if you are looking for Free Art this holiday season, there is a very good chance you will find some at a random location near you πŸ™‚

*If you would like to help fund OPERATION: Bring Art to the People, today is your lucky day. With your donation, not only will you be part of this fantastic movement, but you will also be helping to fuel the Free Art machine that helps spread the message that: Art is For Everyone!Β  πŸ™‚

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you…
As always, thank you to everyone, especially to those who have helped to keep our local artists in Jacksonville by collecting our art, supporting our events, and spreading the word. Our roots are growing deeper and deeper and soon our local scene will be in full bloom with the help of all of you and our hard working artists.

Free Art?!

That’s right, all the art you see here has been randomly dropped throughout Jacksonville and beyond, as west as Salt Lake City, UT and as north as Chattanooga, TN, in an effort to continue OPERATION: Bring Art to the People, a public art project designed to help connect random people to the power of art. As I get opportunities to travel, I will continue to set free more of my art into the open wild, until then, I will continue to do Art Drops through out Jacksonville, FL πŸ™‚
