July’s Spare Time Shares was an Art Gallery Walk hosted by RTP’s Jacquie Goyena and Clara MacDonell. The Spare Time group was separated into teams who were each given a basket with cards that Jacquie and Clara made. The cards included images of each piece of art (with the building and floor number) as well as some tasty snacks. After the teams separated, each group went on an art scavenger hunt as they walked around the RTP Campus.
Group members took photos of the art and discussed what they thought about each piece. On the back of the picture of the art there were blanks for: what they think the art should actually be named, a description of the art, and a mood that the piece emotes. Everyone enjoyed not only exploring different parts of the campus that they had not been to before but they also enjoyed getting to have some intellectual conversation about different art pieces.
Since the event was such a hit we will also having a follow-up “Art Talk” where we get to discuss our different findings on the Art Walk.
Dates and details will be posted soon!
