Nearly six times more artists are involved in the tech-savvy scavenger hunt over last year
Arts & Venues, in fact, will be dropping some of its own art. Besides hiding mini replicas of Lawrence Argent’s “I See What You Mean” sculpture (a.k.a. the Big Blue Bear, just outside the Colorado Convention Center) the city arts agency has partnered with VSA Colorado/Access Gallery to hide artworks from the Art-O-Mat program.
“Art-O-Mat artworks are original, pocket-sized pieces created by participants of VSA Colorado/Access Gallery’s summer Artworks program, a program supporting young people with disabilities transitioning out of high school by providing economic opportunities through the arts,” according to Arts & Venues.
