Downtown Treasure Hunt

Get ready to climb trees, scale ledges, and possibly Dumpster-dive as you scour the nooks and crannies of Fort Lauderdale's downtown for the 13th-annual Art Scavenger Hunt. Each year, Steve Sticht organizes a group of South Florida's best artistic talents to contribute unsigned artwork for the hunt. Participants will receive a map guiding them to original works from the more than 30 local artists participating this year, including Chuck Loose of Iron Forge Press, Rocky Grimes, Francesco Lo Castro, and Coma Girl. Sticht will contribute more than 100 pieces of his own. Saturday at 8 p.m., Sticht will distribute the maps at Laser Wolf, 901 Progresso Drive in Fort Lauderdale. It's best to arrive on time; he estimates all the artwork will be scavenged within the first hour by more than 200 art-hungry attendees. The work is unsigned to prevent a greedy few from shoving as many pieces into their cars as they can and splitting. Sticht may or may not have hired the NSA to keep tabs on sticky-fingered scavengers this year, and they may or may not already have your number. (They might even be watching you read this right now...) Food trucks will be on-site at Laser Wolf for an afterparty, where the artists will be available to sign their works. Remember: Nothing says "thank you" like a burrito and a craft beer. Email [email protected], or call 954-249-8484.
