The Way The Project Works….

I started the Found Art NYC Project in 2011.  It started by me finding a tiny piece of artwork that was framed.  However, the artist did not have his/her information attached. I wished that there was something left by the artist so that way I knew who created it.

Later, while looking at the frame I had an idea.  I decided that I could place frames around the city encouraging people to submit photographs taken of them.  Thus, creating a social media experiment that enables people in NYC to interact with artwork creatively and allowing them to turn the city into a virtual art gallery.

THE WAY THE PROJECT WORKS…

If you find a frame you are encouraged to photograph it using a phone, iPad, iPod, camera, etc.  The more creative you are the better!  Then you submit your photo by sending it to foundartnyc@gmail.com.

Then you are asked to place the frame in an area so that another person can easily find it.  It is really fun to see how a frame travels through out the city.  PLEASE DO NOT KEEP THE FRAME.  We want to keep its journey going!

Once your submission is received it will be displayed on the website.  Granted, it may take a day or two to go up, but it does go up.

Feel free to share your story on how you found the frame if you like and the area you found it in.  It adds to the story of the individual frame and makes the project even more interesting!

GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY FRAME HUNTING!!!
