I didn't get as early a start on it as I would have liked, and it felt a little like Christmas being delayed. I just love art drop day! At 5:30 this morning, though, I realized that I'd have to wait for the bulk of the storm to pass before I could start doing drops. At any rate, nobody would be out in the woods and parks to find them in a thunderstorm at 6am on a Tuesday, so there was no sense in rushing out.
But, oh! The waiting! I really wanted to be sneaky, get all 22 drops out by about 9am, and then watch for finds on social media — like a crafty evil genius who's not actually particularly evil.
As it turns out, I didn't get going until about 8am, and it was still brutal weather out there. The lightning was mostly over the lake, but it was frequent and intense while I was working on my first drop.
Many of the drops have already been found. In fact, many of them were found while I was still in the area where I left them. Some that I expected to be there for days or weeks, even. We have some determined art hunters around here. I'll have to step up my game next year!
Once I started seeing that people were in the same park and finding pieces that I had dropped maybe an hour earlier, I started feeling a sense of urgency, like I was playing an elaborate game of hide-and-seek in the woods. It was delightful!
Here are the drops and hints about their locations. (I'll note the ones that I know have been found.)
Do let me know if you find any of the others. I'd like to know that they haven't flown into the lake in this weather. I hope that you enjoy any art that you find today, and I hope that you'll participate next year.
Happy Art Drop Day!
