Art Galleries, Kids

Art Scavenger Hunt

When: Sat., Aug. 16, 1-4 p.m. 2014

This weekend the Oakland Art Murmur walking tour is doing something a little bit trickier than usual. The monthly art walk that leads participants through local galleries in various parts of town is hosting an all-ages scavenger hunt. Of course, the hunt will be focused around art, asking participants to figure out clues by engaging in examination and discussion of the works on display at participating galleries Royal NoneSuch, Smokey’s Tangle, and Interface. This month’s art walk, led by Susannah Magers of Royal NoneSuch, is themed “alternative spaces” — a promising title for those who are hoping to uncover a new dimension of the eclectic district. The event will be an opportunity for all members of the family to get excited about the art being made in their community, fueling their interest through guided investigation. And every scavenger hunt participant goes home with a prize inspired by the exhibits he or she saw, so you don’t have to worry about any competitive kids (or adults) going home teary-eyed because they didn’t do so great. Art is for everyone.
