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

Artists are leaving their artwork all through Capitol Hill for anyone to pick up, 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.

It's a great way of taking art straight to local neighborhoods and build community. 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 themselves a new piece of art to keep.

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


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


It looks like there's still a General Lee print waiting to be found in Anchorage. Go get it!

Narboo says “ It happens probably more than you know, is like a treasure hunt.”


Free as a bird...
