Every Friday a city wide art project called #atxfreeartfriday takes place in Austin, TX. Local artists create and hide art for community members to discover. It is our hopes that this piece of art will brighten your day and remind you of the generous nature of those in your community. Below you will find instructions on how to claim art, contribute your own, seek clues or sponsor the event.

If any of the below steps are confusing or if you need additional information, please email us at Enjoy and have fun!

1) Leave an “I found it” comment on the artists Instagram post, and upload a photo of the art to your own Instagram with the hashtag #atxfreeartfriday. Please thank the artist in your post by @tagging them!
