Getting Crafty for Free Art Friday

Sometimes you just need to roll up your sleeves and get a little crafty. That's what I did earlier today when I met up with Stephanie at I Scream Ice Cream on Carlisle. Stephanie runs the Facebook page for Free Art Friday Albuquerque.

For those who don't know, Free Art Friday happens in cities all over the country. On Fridays, artists offer up free art for the taking by placing it in public places around town, usually with a tag instructing passersby that they are welcome to take the artwork home.

I think it's a pretty awesome concept and even more awesome that Stephanie works to ensure new art goes out week after week. I'm sure it's no easy task but I certainly had a great time helping her out today. I'm sure it didn't hurt that were working from within easily the coolest ice cream shop in Albuquerque.

We worked on some green clovers that'll go out tomorrow and on St. Patrick's Day. Keep an eye out for them. If you see one, take it! That's the whole idea, right?

Be sure to give the page a like to keep updated on future art drops. Who knows? Maybe some of you will participate by creating your own art. I'd encourage it!
