Last month, the Office of Cultural Affairs held its first public art scavenger hunt.  Art enthusiasts from all over the city came out to support Atlanta and its renowned public art collection.  Equipped with app in hand, players buzzed through downtown Atlanta for a chance to win coveted prizes that included original artwork by local street artist Evereman and visual artist Jessica Caldes, along with one of kind vintage Atlanta Jazz Festival takeaways. With over 30 players, the public art scavenger hunt was a great way for Atlantains to not only become familiar with this exciting new app feature but also gained little known knowledge about our city’s treasured art collection.

Shana Lee from Shana Was Here, was our first place winner and had this to say about the event:

“I had a awesome experience participating in the Atlanta Public Art Scavenger Hunt! What a great way to learn some Atlanta history, see amazing art, and get some exercise all at the same time! It would be a great activity for the family to do on the weekend. There are many more public art pieces listed on The City of Atlanta’s Public Art APP just waiting to be discovered.”
Second Place: Andy Levitz
Third Place:  Francisco Fabian
