World Art Drop Day

For the collector on a shoestring budget, it doesn’t get much better than World Art Drop Day, which each year invites artists of all persuasions to “drop” artwork in a public location, photograph it and then post it on social media (possibly with a clue as to its whereabouts) using the hashtag #artdropday. In essence an art-centric scavenger hunt that unfolds online but entails searching in the traditional sense (with your eyes, #IRL), the annual event is the brainchild of Jake Parker, the Utah-based illustrator and animator behind the cartoon character Missile Mouse. Parker, who spent part of this summer conducting a cross-country art drop of his own, sums up the importance of World Art Drop Day as such: “The world needs this right now. We need to feel a little more connection to each other, and there’s nothing like the bond two random strangers can make through the act of creating and giving.” Thanks to organizing partner Southwest School of Art, World Art Drop Day continues to build momentum in San Antonio, with upward of 1,000 participants scouring streets, parks, landmarks and parking lots for paintings, drawing, photographs, even one-of-a-kind glass marbles. Those wishing to contribute are encouraged to pick up official World Art Drop Day tags for their pieces and use the localized hashtag #ssaartdrop2018.
