Mount Vernon Community Art Social and Geocoin Art Hunt
June 21st, 2015 1:00pm thru 4:00pm
Attention Art Lovers!
Update 7/20/15: The Geoweekend was a total blast! We are out of coins, so this event is being archived. Thanks for everybody's support. See you next year. Birthday 126 and a bigger better event!
The City of Mount Vernon is very proud of its public art. The Mount Vernon Arts Commission celebrates the diversity of art within our community. Numerous pieces of outdoor art are spread around the city, as well as the college campus. Even though there is a Geocoin Challenge aspect to this, the event itself is the gathering at the Tulip Dance Statue prior to the Art Hunt.
Join us at the 'Tulip Dance' located on the Plaza of the Riverwalk. It is our newest piece of outdoor art and the focus of our gathering to explore and discuss modern outdoor art. We will talk about other pieces of art located in the Downtown area, as well as other art spread around the community. We will provide a clue book for you to search out and admire these other pieces. If you choose to hunt down these 10 pieces, you will locate a 'clue' to enter into your tour book. Find all 10 and receive the very first Mount Vernon Art Hunt Geocoin. (Optional Activity)
Timeline for this event:
1:00-1:30pm Social Gathering at the Tulip Dance statue on the new Riverwalk Plaza
1:35pm Gather for Group photo at the Tulip Dance Statue
