SEATTLE - Local artists are giving away their work away for free. The goal is to help people feel a little more connected and create random bonds between strangers through the act of creating and giving.
It's a great way of taking art straight to local neighborhoods and build community. Understanding that the power of art can change a person and give their life a new meaning.
Normally the artists go out for a walk and leave their work around various spots of the city, hoping that someone finds themselves a new piece of art to keep.
Rhodora Jacob says “ It’s great to bring the community together in a non-direct way."
Dave Ryan says “ It’s just nice to do something for a stranger and just pass that on.”
Narboo says “ It happens probably more than you know, is like a treasure hunt.”
Xavier Lopez says “ Every artist in Seattle gets their start by putting their work out so others can see it.”
