With chapters in Australia, Canada, Israel, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal, Serbia, UK, and all over the U.S., Miami has now joined the ranks. Free Art Friday seeks to unite artists and districts with its city-wide art scavenger hunt. The premise is simple: Artists hide their own works of art around the city, and the first person to find it can take it home for free.
"It happens on a larger scale every Friday, we just don't really know about it," Registered Artist, founder of the Miami chapter, said of the growing community project. After befriending some of the original founding artists of FAF through Facebook, Artist realized that although other places recognize Miami as an artistic destination because of Art Basel and the hype surrounding Wynwood, people from different parts of the world have no concrete visual representation of the Miami artist as an individual. He was encouraged by these newfound friends to initiate a local FAF, which would also be recognized by other chapters.
