World Art Drop Day

An annual scavenger hunt of creative proportions, World Art Drop Day invites artists of all persuasions (“students and professionals, painters and cartoonists, sculptors and illustrators, animators and fine artists, photographers and printmakers”) to hide an original work of art, take a photo of it (along with an optional clue as to its hiding place), and post it on social media using the hashtag #artdropday. Launched by Jake Parker (a Utah-based illustrator who’s worked on animated blockbusters and notably created the risk-taking, rule-breaking cartoon character Missile Mouse), World Art Drop Day takes shape on a local level through an initiative organized by the Southwest School of Art. In 2016, a reported 1,100 San Antonians jumped on board, hiding and hunting drawings, prints, photographs and ceramics in coffee shops, restaurants and parking lots ... on lamp posts, bulletin boards and chain-link fences. Those wishing to take part in this year’s event are encouraged to pick up official World Art Drop Day tags to attach to their contributions and also tack on the localized hashtag #ssaartdrop2017. In the wise words of founding father Jake Parker, “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.”
