SELFIES ARE THE GOLDEN TICKET IN PHILLY’S WEEK LONG STREET ART SCAVENGER HUNT

Philly Tech Week  2014 is hosting something new this year, a citywide street art scavenger hunt.

The scavenger hunt, organized by community arts supporters, Tattooed Mom, Philly Tech Week and HAHA x Paradigm is designed to spotlight Philadelphia street artists, their work, and the neighborhoods that inspire them. So far, the lineup has included artists:  Joe BoruchowKid Hazo (work pictured below), HurrayForBraille Street ArtBobWillReign and Scrandy.

Daily clues to the stashed artwork locations get released at midnight.  Each day is a fresh hunt, a new artist, and a new winner. Hunters must take selfies with the art and share them via Twitter or Instagram using the scavenger hashtags for a chance to win an exclusive piece of art

Dedication is the key for participating art lovers – daily selfies are entries counted toward your chance of winning special prizes awarded to participants who find the most art at the end of Tech Week.

The scavenger hunt began on April 4th, 2014 and will continue until Philly Tech Week commences on April 12th, 2014.
