Polling day treasure hunt-Find Rob Matthews drawing on telephone pole

sponsored

At around 8 pm last night I got an email from Rob Matthews alerting me to a new project of his–a street giveaway of two drawings from 2003. The artist had stapled the works (inside plastic envelopes for safe keeping) to telephone poles in his Northern Liberties neighborhood. Wow– a treasure hunt for a free Rob Matthews drawing!

Rob Matthews, Light Dream, 2003. One of two drawings the artist put out on the street last night, free for the taking--you just have to find them.

Matthews, one of my favorite bloggers and artists, shows his work at Gallery Joe and his work is in several museum collections. But the community-spirited artist also shows works in group events big and small around the country (he’s in a show, My Certain Fate, in Los Angeles right now organized by blogger/artist Timothy Buckwalter).   And Rob’s a community-minded guy in general participating in projects through his church and other groups.  He’s a generous guy, so giving it away shouldn’t come as a shock. But what he’s giving — two of his great, labor-intensive and beautiful drawings — makes this a gold-standard art giveaway.

By 10:45 pm last night one of the drawings had been nabbed.   But as of this morning I think the other one is still out there looking for a home.  Rob’s got a couple treasure maps ala google satellite on his blog of where the telephone polls are.  Good luck!
