What is the Art Treasure Hunt Challenge?
Flower Mound is home to a friendly creature named The Flower Moundster. The Moundster is a peaceful being, and one that takes great pride in the beauty of the Town and the importance of the environment. Because of this, recycling and repurposing materials is one of the Moundster’s favorite things to do! The Moundster has teamed up with Keep Flower Mound Beautiful and the Flower Mound Parks and Recreation team to create a challenge for residents based on recycling and repurposing materials.
The Moundster has filled boxes with various materials and hidden them throughout some of the parks in Flower Mound. The hope is that people will find them and make unique creations from the object or objects that have been placed inside. If someone is lucky enough to find one of these “treasure boxes”, they are challenged to push their imaginations! The goal is to create a piece of art using the items that are found inside the treasure box. Inside each box, there will also be instructions and an example. We will hide the next round of boxes the week of November 2. We will hide more than usual because we will be celebrating Arts Month in November, so be on the lookout for the new clues!
Once a box has been found and a unique piece of art has been created take a photo with it and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will highlight the art and the artist(s) on the Town of Flower Mound Cultural Arts webpage. The artwork will be displayed in the Flower Mound Public Library so that The Flower Moundster will have a chance to gaze upon the masterpiece and know that the townspeople are rising to the challenge that it has put forth. Have fun hunting!
