Art Travels to Vietnam and Cambodia

It’s been a while since I have given updates, but Found This Art remains busy, busy busy! Art has recently been dropped in northern Canada, as well as the historic seaside village of Lunenberg, in Nova Scotia, and in hotel lobby in a small town in New Brunswick.

I also managed to find a friend who was travelling to Far Away Places, including Vietnam and Cambodia. Let’s call this friend of mine Clara (which may or may not be her real name!). Clara recently sent me some photos of the places some art was dropped:

A fishy scene.

This was in Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), at a cafe. I just love how Clara had the fish peek out from behind the vase. Here’s the original, if you are interested to see what it looks like:

Clara also left a very small piece in the lobby of a hostel in Siem Reap, in Cambodia. Can you find it in the photo below?

This piece is just done with ink, and is perhaps 3-4 inches long and less than an inch in width; here’s the original:

A whale, a spider, a person, a rabbit, and a crow. Just because.

Clara has a few other pieces tucked in her backpack, so you will have to wait and see what other amazing places she visit. Thank you, Clara, for helping with this project! It’s great to have friends like you, and I know people will find the art, and it will bring them joy.

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.
