ART ABANDONMENT

to Dec 31

ART ABANDONMENT

RAA members are invited to do a random act of kindness by selecting a small work of art of their's and "hiding it in plain sight" so that someone can find it and take it home for free. This has been an ongoing event for RAA members since WaterFire of 2014. It is used to promote the artist by including a business card, the Random Acts of Artists Inc. group and WaterFire by including the flyer that can be downloaded and printed from the links below. Just put the art, your business card or flyer, and the printed flyer you find below into a claret plastic bag so the the "You found me... " is showing and hide it somewhere for someone to find.

You can download a .pdf of the information sheet and the cover sheet here and print as many as you care to use.
