Calling all artists

weblog-faf

January is a depressing month, even more so when it’s at the beginning of a recession. This city and it’s people need something to smile about again and we need you to help make it happen.

Free Art Friday is a relatively new art movement that’s rapidly gaining in popularity around the World. Artists create a painting, sketch, sculpture or installation and leave it on the street. The piece can then be picked up by anyone and claim it as their own. Finders are encouraged to email the artist and tell them how and where they found it. We’re asking all painters, photographers, illustrators, sculptures, graffiti artists, taggers, cartoonists or any visual artist to contribute a small piece of work that will be hung/placed/or left on the streets of Dublin on Friday 23rd January for anyone to take away.

Closing date for submissions is Monday 19th January 2009 see our ‘Get Involved’ page for all the deatils

    A really good idea! I think it will suprise and excite many and hopefully allow people have and own ‘real’ art. It could also develop into a fantastic continueing project.
    Well Done.
