    Default #PublicArtFinder FS2023 Pointless Prize



    How to play #PublicArtFinder:

    1. RIDE your bike AT LEAST 10 MILES and share on this thread the discovery of any art form (loosely defined: you know it when you see it) that is readily accessible to the general public. Only one art form allowed per 10+mile ride. If you want to discover more art, then start a new ride on Strava and post another art find. Rides less than 10 miles do not count.

    2. POST a picture [using Small resolution] on this thread of your art find with some or all of YOUR BIKE IN IT. Pics that donít include your bike will not count. Adding your pic to your Strava ride helps w/ verification, but does not substitute for posting on this thread.

    3. #Publicartfinder pics must be POSTED ON THE DAY of the ride just like #scavhunt.

    4. Include the LOCATION of your art find so that others may find it, too.

    5. Use HASHTAG #publicartfinder (not CaSe SeNsItIvE) in your Strava Ride title so that it will appear on the FS2023 #publicartfinder leaderboard https://freezingsaddles.org/pointles...ublicartfinder I will sweep this leaderboard
    for data periodically to feed the official #publicartfinder scoreboard found here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...t#gid=58255797

    6. FOLLOW ME (Boomer Cycles) on Strava so that I can verify your #publicartfinder rides.

    Entries will be judged by some faceless cabal on subjective criteria that may include use of creative objects (like your bike interacting w/ an art form), composition, light, artistic flair, witty captions, great stories, # of quality submissions, or # likes, kudos or dislikes, and bonus points. In the event of a tie, efficacy rules: most art discoveries/least amount of miles wins.

    If you played #publicartfinder in years past, go find some New2U art!

    Now go Ride and Seek some public art ;-

    Georgetown Waterfront park. Sign is probably cooler at night. Plan to go back. My bicycle is the one with only front wheel showing on right side of photo. Pictured with me are two new FS recruits.

    Feel free to disallow, as I did not post on the day of the ride, but the competition hadn't been announced then. Otherwise, it followed the rules {bike included, ride of at least 10 miles, tagged on Strava). And let me know if I should untag.

    Feel free to back date all qualifying rides as of 12:01 AM 01-01-2023 with the hashtag #publicartfinder since I was full of the holiday spirit and slow to announce this yearís competition.

    The #publicartfinder faceless cabal has ruled in your favor since they were slow in getting their act together this year
