One year, 52 art pieces, 14 countries

I know it’s hard to believe, but Found This Art started one year ago! It’s been a fabulous year for the project: the 52 pieces of art found their way to 14 different countries, from North America, to Europe, Australia to Thailand. I must give a HUGE thanks to the amazing secret agents (’cause I sure didn’t travel to 14 different countries this year….)

While I’m confident all the pieces were found, three people reported in with their stories: one from a coffee shop in the USA, one from a hotel in Portugal, and one from a tourist center in the Yukon Territory of Canada. I’m also confident a few more folks will report their own Found Art adventures as this year draws to a close.

This map shows the countries that become home for the Art (depicted by the dots), and the three countries were Art was found (blue dots).

I’m sure you have many questions, but perhaps the one that is top-of-mind is this: will the project continue? Well, friends, that’s an easy one to answer: OF COURSE IT WILL. It’s been so much fun to do this project, and a great adventure for me, my secret agents, and I know it has brought much joy to many people, around the world.

Please, everyone, keep an eye out for pieces of art – whether on a table of a coffee shop, maybe in an airport, on a plane, or on the back of a golf cart. The art is everywhere, waiting for you.

And Happy New Year too! I’m forever grateful that you are following along and taking part in Found This Art.
