iHeart Arts Month 2021

In 2015, Greensboro City Council passed a resolution

declaring April as I Heart Arts month.

This year, the arts need your help more than ever. Show your love by participating in the ArtsGreensboro Public Art Scavenger Hunt and support the annual ArtsFund.

This DIY event is for art lovers like you. The Art Scavenger Hunt is family-friendly, free to participate, loads of fun, and you can win prizes. Register for the event, and we will send you a code to download the app. Share the experience by organizing a “safely-distanced” team or go it alone. There will be challenges along the way that will earn you points.  You have the entire month of April to experience the amazing art that Greensboro has to offer.

When you register, you will have the option to donate to the ArtsFund, a community-wide campaign supporting our arts organizations and artists. Be one of the first 75 people to register and donate, and we will send you a free Arts Through it All window cling so you can proudly display your support of the arts.

You will be provided a game code to sign in. Pick a team name and start your hunt. The scavenger hunt starts on April 1 and runs through April 30tn.

In the app, you will be given the opportunity to visit different public art spaces or art venues located around Greensboro. You can play as a team or individual. You can do all the challenges on a weekend or take the entire month to complete. Each location has a thumbnail photo and geolocator. Visit the site, answer the challenge question, and you will win points.

As you make your way around to each site, you will be presented with challenges, such as a trivia question, a multiple-choice question, your thoughtful response, or a creative photo/video challenge. Each challenge gives you points. Points will not be officially awarded until you complete the challenge. How fun, be creative, and get a chance to see the amazing and vibrant art that Greensboro has to offer.

The hunt ends on April 30, and on May 3, we will announce the winners. Prizes will be awarded based upon (1) the most points earned, (2) the most creative photo, and (3) the most thoughtful response. If there is a tie, we will draw names to select a winner.
