Free Art Friday Fredericksburg (FAFFVA) will be, starting January 6th, a monthly event happening on the first friday of each month. I can’t say that I am the mastermind behind this one because I’m not. In an email I saw a link to FAFDC (Washington, DC) and I was intrigued so I had to investigate. Salvadore Delvesco was inspired by FAFALT (Atlanta, GA) to start FAFDC. I liked the concept so much I sent a message to a friend of mine, Sue Henderson, an artist from Fredericksburg, asking if we should start a FAF in the ‘Burg. Being the impatient person that I am, I could wait for a reply, and thinking about it for, oh 5 minutes, I decided to go ahead a get one started! Within a few minutes of creating a FAFFVA Facebook page another artist friend of mind, Terri Creasy, liked the page.
Here are the rules as posted by Kenn Twofour the person behind FAFALT:
Free Art Friday is an art scavenger hunt that happens on the first Friday of every month.Participants make art and place it around town for others to find and take home.
We really encourage you to make art not just take art!
Life is more fun when you are playing the game and not just watching the game!
Here is the basic info:
1. Make art.
2. The art should be weatherproof. It’s going to be outside.
3. No web address on the front of the pieces. Don’t be tacky.
4. Hang your art around town for people to find.
5. Post a photo and clues to the location of the art on Facebook and Twitter.
So with all that in mind I invite anyone in the Fredericksburg area to participate in Free Art Friday Fredericksburg. I will be posting more information on Facebook so like the page and Follow what’s going on at @FAFFVA on Twitter!
