I clearly have a fondness for North Carolina, and North Carolina clearly likes art. In addition to some exciting activity in Raleigh, recently this project made its way a little to the south-east, to Wayne County, and the city of Goldsboro. I am so grateful for the Arts Council of Wayne County to embrace Found This Art.
This was timed around the US thanksgiving weekend, which is appropriate, since giving and receiving art is something to be thankful for. So, friends of Wayne County, may you find art and may it bring you joy! And thanks, as always, to a great friend of this project, Eleanor Spicer Rice, for helping spread the love of Art to different part of North Carolina.
Not long ago this art project was featured in a magazine in Raleigh, North Carolina, and in addition to the write-up, art was secretly dropped around the city. And, lo and behold, art was also FOUND in the city! Samantha, for example, discovered a piece of art right in the downtown core, and she shared her find via Instagram:
THANKS Samatha, for being open to seeing art, and sharing your story with the world. I also find it lovely that the art she found in the city was a piece of art that depicted a city scene. That’s fun, and appropriate. Here’s the original:
Ohhh so much is happening, friends – I have many Found Art stories to share with you in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
My last blog post talked about some art making its way to the city of Raleigh. And today I get to report something *very* exciting – I was interviewed by a writer from Raleigh and you can read all about it here!
I must give a HUGE thanks to Walter Magazine for taking an interest in this project, and a HUGE thanks to Eleanor, who interviewed me, and a HUGE shout-out to Raleigh itself, a simply exceptional city, and one that I am so fond of visiting.
I hope some of you fine folks in North Carolina stumble across some art. Enjoy it, and may it bring you joy.
