    'Finding Your Part in Public Art' Scavenger Hunt

    'Finding Your Part in Public Art Scavenger Hunt maps and answer keys will be available Saturday, Sept. 28, at The Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, 720 S. Tryon St., Charlotte; The Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture, 551 S. Tryon St. Charlotte; and Mint Museum Uptown, 500 S. Tryon St., Charlotte.

    The 'Finding Your Part in Public Art' Scavenger Hunt celebrates the impact public art has made in creating a sense of space and place throughout Charlotte-Mecklenburg. Families, public art and health enthusiasts, or anyone looking for a fun way to spend time getting better acquainted with Uptown Charlotte is invited to participate. The scavenger hunt provides a comprehensive overview of public art along Uptown Charlotte's 'Cultural Mile.' You can begin the hunt at the McColl Center for Visual Art and walk south on Tryon Street, or you can use clues to just find the pieces that intrigue you. Scavenger hunt brochures can be picked up between 9:30-11:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, at the McColl Center or downloaded from the Arts & Science Council (ASC) website or by clicking HERE.

    Participants are asked to take creative pictures of the works they find as part of the scavenger hunt and to email them to ASC at asc@artsandscience.org and to also share them with ASC via social media: on Facebook at Facebook/ASCCharlotte; via Twitter @ASCCharlotte #PublicArtCLT; or on Instagram @ASCCharlotte. Already have plans Sept. 28? That's okay! Just download the scavenger hunt brochure and complete as much or as little of it as you want at your leisure. Happy hunting!
