Artists are leaving their work around the city... for free

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.

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, and 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 a new piece of art to keep.

“It’s great to bring the community together in a non-direct way," said Rhodora Jacob.

“It’s just nice to do something for a stranger and just pass that on,” said Dave Ryan.
