DETAILS OF THE 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 pieces of art to send to their partner to abandon, with a note attached if desired, outlining the purpose of art abandonment (see more below). After taking pictures of the pieces of art (so we can see detail! Cheesy), the receiving partner will place these items around their local hometown in the hopes of inspiring others and bringing a smile - they should also attempt, if possible, to take a picture of the abandoned art in its abandoned location. Additionally, each person will include 1 small item for their partner. Again, this could be the same as what you made to be abandoned or something different along the swap theme.

As art is received and abandoned, the swapper should post pictures in the gallery.

The swap is open to each person's creativity so make this your own! Great ideas for abandoned art would be things like ATCs, twinchies, mini shrines, embroidery, amigurumi, painted rocks, etc etc! The sky is the limit.

REGARDING THE ATTACHED NOTE:

In the last round, most swappers chose to attach a note to help anyone who might stumble upon their art understand the purpose. Even cooler, some of the swappers got a response from the people that ended up finding their pieces! An example of a note that was included is this:
"Abandoned Art encourages artists and crafters to leave art in various locations around the globe for a lucky, unsuspecting person to find - like YOU!  Use it, give it as a gift or share with someone that you care about.  If this piece of art is not your taste, leave it for someone else to find.  In joy, Enjoy!  If you adopt this piece of artwork, please consider letting us know where you found your art by emailing xxxx@gmail.com."

Here is a link to the last round's discussion and gallery for more inspiration...

Haha, I think I just figured out what I'm going to do for my art pieces. Not the lightest thing to ship ever, but it'll be an awesome piece to find.

What a great idea for a swap! I think the timing won't work for my schedule, but I'll give it a good look before I give up on it. Maybe it'll be possible.
