How cool is this?
The Scavenger Project
This is as much a social experiment as it is an art exhibition. You will receive a universal list that you (and every participant involved) will use to visually interpret each item. Any medium may be used as long as it can be shipped to us (or photos taken and included on a CD). Experimentation and thinking outside of the box is the name of the game.
The final outcome is to document the project in two ways, including multiple exhibitions (at galleries in Brooklyn, NY and Seattle, WA) and in a book.
At least one of your items will be included in the book.
The Book To document the project, we will be creating a book out of the submissions we receive. Each person who participates will have at least one of their submissions printed in the book.
The book will be perfect bound and printed in full color with approximately 60-80 pages.
You can pre-order the book now along with your project for a $5.00 discount.

The T-Shirt To go along with the project, we’re releasing a limited edition screen printed t-shirt. They are printed on American Apparel 100% cotton tees.
They include the list on top center of the back of the shirt just incase you’ve forgotten your list when inspiration strikes.
T-shirts start shipping October 20th. Price includes shipping!
You can purchase a t-shirt to the left with your project submission for a discounted price.
The RulesGeneralRulesFAQsAgreementTo participate in this project, simply add it to your cart on the left and then proceed with the check out process. We will then send you a welcome packet along with the list of items for you to interpret.
Your goal is to create a piece of artwork, object, or some form of an idea based around each item on the list.
At least one of your pieces will be included in both the book AND the exhibitions.
You may use any medium to create your artwork. However, please keep in mind that you must ship the artwork to us in the mail, so make sure your work is at a size that is able to be shipped. You may also submit your work on a CD. However, by submitting only with a CD, we can unfortunately not include your work in the exhibitions (only the book.) Please make sure to read the details in the "Rules" tab about using a CD to submit.
Due to the nature of the project, we are unable to send work back to you. Please keep this in mind when submitting originals. Because of this, you may want to have your work professionally photographed and submit it on a CD. The collection of artwork will be stored at Brooklyn Art Library in 2010.
I think I must do this!
