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. There is still a box hidden at Heritage Park and one at Post Oak Park! We will also hide more boxes the week of September 1. Check back here for 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!
**PLEASE EMAIL KRISSI.ODEN@FLOWER-MOUND.COM AS SOON AS YOU FIND A BOX SO WE CAN UPDATE THE SITE AND HIDE A NEW TREASURE!**
Where has The Flower Moundster hidden the boxes?
Heritage Park – 600 Spinks Rd, Flower Mound, 75028
Post Oak Park – 3000 Skillern Blvd, Flower Mound, TX, 75022
What are the clues to the locations of the boxes?
Off the ground and off the path, nestled in some bark
I see some trees and 2 fluffy tales from my perch in Heritage Park
(The 2 fluffy tales belong to an animal that was the focus of a very popular children’s song a couple of years ago)
Post Oak Park:
I can see water and space to skip and run and benches if I wish to sit
I’m in the open, yet covered in leaves – to find me, you might have to dig a bit
What do I do if I find a box?
Please email email@example.com immediately when you find a box. That way, we can let other treasure hunters know to stop looking for that one and to be on the lookout for the next clue to the new treasure!
Where do I take the box and my artwork when I’m finished?
Once you have created your artwork using the object or objects found inside the box, email a photo of you and your artwork to firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t forget to include your name, age, and the name of the park where you found the treasure box. Then, bring the box and the art to the O & M Building, located at 201 Spinks Road, Flower Mound, 75028. You will receive a prize and a featured spot on the Cultural Arts webpage. The artwork will be taken over to the Flower Mound Public Library for display and the box will be filled with more treasure and hidden in a different place for the next treasure hunter to find.
We will hide new boxes in September and will have new boxes each month. Visit https://www.flower-mound.com/1844/Art-Treasure-Hunt for updates, details, and clues.
