I took advantage of Friday’s unusually cool weather to head out to Center City, Philly for free art Friday. I put out about 9-10 canvas panels, took pics of most of them. Enjoy, strangers!
I’ve been doing Free Art Friday for a little over a month now and it’s been great. I’ve given out quite a few pieces so far, about 30 or more (I’ve taken the liberty to start free art Wednesdays and Thursdays). The plethora of discarded student canvas panels I’ve collected at the end of the year give me the fodder to make and give out so many. My students are aware and like the idea of what they thought was trash has become a collaboration of sorts. I’ll be sure to continue until I run out of canvases, but I know I’ll just end up buy more canvases.
A few of the paintings I’ve bestowed on Philadelphia:
These last two were at Tattooed Mom’s Bar. The owner had found one of the pieces I left behind a couple days ago and hooked me up with free tacos! I was sure to tip the server well.
A lot of these are/will be available for sale through Esty (If you don’t find one on the streets).

I made these for free art Fridays, which I find to be a great idea. It’s been picking up momentum, and you can find sites that document the artists, as well as the people who find them. These 5×5 canvas panels will be around Philly, and expect more all summer long!
