You will be provided a game code to sign in. Pick a team name and start your hunt. The scavenger hunt starts on April 16 and runs through April 30 at 9:00pm.

In the app, you will be given the opportunity to visit different public art spaces or art venues located around Greensboro. You can play with a team or go it alone. You can do all the challenges on a weekend or take the two weeks 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.
