It's Time To Go on a Scavenger Hunt... For The Arts!
Two local arts organizations are inviting people to search for glass globes while they enjoy public art.
On Thursday, Quad City Arts and Hot Glass announced they've hidden 250 blown glass 'floats' made by Hot Glass. They're located in 10 different parks.
Charlotte Doehler-Morrison from Visit Quad Cities says it's called the 'QC Great Glass Hunt.'
"We had to hide those glass floats a little bit ahead of time to make sure they were ready to go. There have already been 74 floats found out of the 250."
Kevin Maynard, Executive Director of Quad City Arts, also says it includes a digital experience. The 'QC Public Arts Trail' is a website where you can check-in to different local arts locations, including permanent and temporary exhibitions and sculptures.
"There is even reason to visit the trail often as our community's collection keeps growing. You will see that some of these sculptures are marked as temporary, because they are on loan and they will be rotated out every year in June."
After checking in to 15 of the 90 locations on the Public Art Trail, participants are eligible to win a 500 dollar gift card. There will be in a drawing in September of 2023. Once all 250 'floats' are found, planning will begin for another Great Glass Hunt.
