Pop Up Spaces Scavenger Hunt

Posted By on Fri, Feb 20, 2009 at 9:17 AM

Pop Up Spaces, a collaboration between Tucson artists Rachelle Diaz (Tu Scene), Molly McClintock (MAXED ART) and July Ray (The Burrito Files), is bringing its first project to yep, you guessed it --downtown Tucson. The art collaboration plans to produce temporary, interactive, site-specific installations in empty spaces asking viewers to be part of the art experience. Downtown Scavenger Hunt is the inaugural project.

According to their press release:

Walk through the streets of downtown Tucson and you will find multiple FOR RENT signs on every block. While that may be discouraging to some Tucsonans, the team at Pop Up Spaces sees these spaces as blank canvases. In the Downtown Scavenger Hunt on March 1, participants will be given clues to find 10 locations, each one with a short activity that will encourage them to engage with the current environment, reflect upon the historic record, and imagine future possibilities for the space. The resulting photography and writings will be displayed in the future at a time and venue TBA. Clues and instructions can be picked up at Shot in the Dark Café, 121 East Broadway Blvd. between 12 and 2 p.m. (March 1) Downtown Scavenger Hunt is free and appropriate for all ages.
