Is it “found art” when it’s intentionally
left out to be found
Enough findings at this street corner have been documented in a blog as long ago as April 2007
, around the time anonymous artist(s) were planting small paintings
at street signs in urban residential neighborhoods.
The resident who tracks the found art sightings, regularly updates with photos of her neighborhood’s location, a telephone pole with a makeshift shelf
for passersby to anonymously place (and replace) found items.
Now she has become one
of a posse of local artists is launching a movement in the spirit of this found art, calling itself Real Small Art.
