Details of swap:

Who doesn't like to make art? And who wouldn't LOVE to randomly discover a bit of art in their local library or park?

Each swapper will create 5 small items (they can be duplicates or each different) to send to their partner to abandon. The receiving partner will place these items around their local hometown in the hopes of inspiring others and bringing a smile. Additionally, each person will include 1 small item for their partner. Again, this could be the same as what you made to be abandonned or something different along the swap theme.

As art is received and abandonned, the swapper should post pictures in the gallery. It would be fabulous if the swapper was able to follow up on the art to see if it had been discovered and post as well if possible.

The swap is open to each one's creativity so make this your own! Hiking last weekend I discovered a tree with christmas ornaments in the middle of the woods and it made my day. Hopefully we can share our own smiles and create our own game to figure out where to abandon.
 
This swap is inspired by a posting by a fellow craftster at http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=408484.0

Really love this idea. I work on a college campus and think that found-art will be a great stress reliever for students.

Yay, my sign-up is sent!  Now, thanks to you all, when I go out during daylight hours, I'm scouting out potential art-abandonment sites, which is more positive than my usual frame of mind when I'm out.  Smiley I'll keep working on my local art abandonment issues during the sign-up period and try to get some art out into the world.

I live in a big city, work in a hospital, which is near our provincial parliament, between two universities, near an art college, a fashion district, a huge mall, etc, so I have lots of indoor places to abandon - so long as they are not threatening looking packages.  I also live in a suburban area with a huge zoo nearby and a large park/conservation area, so I could abandon outside as well.

BTW - question - when we make our items, are we shipping them unpackaged for the receiver to package for abandoning, or do we ship packaged and ready for abandonment?  Or should that be discussed amongst partners???

I could package, and leave open in case the receiver wants to leave a note...  I was thinking that for my received items, I would like to leave a note about our project/swap, and a link to this site, and any blog post I make about it, in case anyone wants to leave a comment when it is found.

That would be really neat to hear from someone that found an item. I think in general the items should be shipped ready for abandonment so that one half of the team makes the item, the other half abandons it (and vice versa sending in the other direction). BUT, I think it would be great to talk with your partners about leaving a note with it. Definitely discuss possible notes and if the crafter could include them or the abandonner could add them. It might be easier for the crafter to include notes. This would also be better just in case someone who lives near the abandonner found the art and recognized the handwriting (slim, I know, but depending on who finds it, you do not necessarily need someone knocking at your door).
