Earlier this month, several tenants of The Arts & Industry gathered over some wine and cheese to talk about how to spark more community in our beloved building. One of the many ideas that came out of that meeting was to organize another public-facing event like the fall Open Studios… but a little different, and in the spring.
Spring Thing! is a fun, interactive addition to fall Open Studios in the Arts & Industry building. This year we will be organizing a scavenger hunt for the public to get to know our building and the people in it from a new vantage point. A few artists in the building have committed to creating a miniature art piece that they will hide for participants. There will be clues and instructions throughout the building for those interested in following the game. We will also invite artists and businesses to open their doors during this event, so people who come have the option to roam and peruse the art studios or engage in the hunt.
The entire scavenger hunt should take about an hour and will expand out to a few local spots in Florence. Bring a date, a group of friends, or the entire family!
