"FIND ART Across America"
Find Art Magazine

  • Project Space 613 Allen Street Austin, TX, 78702 United States (map)

In 2010, FIND Art Magazine put a stamp on the Southern California art scene, transforming the region by discovering emerging artists and showcasing them alongside area mainstays of the art world, building a community in the process. Now, the same creative force behind FIND is venturing beyond, seeking out the best artists the nation has to offer along with hidden finds just waiting to be found.

We are proud to announce “FIND Art Across America,” a touring concept that brings the art to the people. Rather than waiting for the artists to come to us, we’re going to FIND them, and share their work with the entire world, creating both an unprecedented arts phenomenon while bringing together for the first time a national arts community!

The FIND Art Magazine crew, will tour the country to strategically chosen destinations in a big rig truck customized to function as a mobile art gallery and kinetic sculpture, essentially transforming the vehicle into a permanent artifact. FIND has already begun compiling the best independent artists found all over the country to feature in the first ever national issue with 50,000 magazines printed and distributed in over 55 cities. Showcasing the most well known artistic colonies with the hottest galleries featuring artists showcased in FIND Art Magazine and also discovering those off the beaten path; those artists creating in relative anonymity…until NOW!

FIND Art Across America’s two month tour will begin in Orange County this May 12 culminating at the L.A. Art Machine International Urban Art Festival July 14-17, 2011. An event unlike any of its kind bringing artists from all across the globe to Los Angeles’ historic Olvera Street. The entire tour and the artists we FIND will be thoroughly documented through video podcasts, consistent daily blogging, and maximized use of our vast social networking communities, along with partner communities via our partners at L.A. Art Machine and Stroke Urban Artfair. These channels will ensure that the adventures along the way will be broadcast to not only a nationwide audience, but a global one as well, with all content leading up to the biggest international arts festival the Southland has ever seen!
