Free Little Art Gallery: Make Art, Leave Art, Take Art!

Art Invasion |

The Free Little Art Gallery (FLAG) is a free miniature art gallery modeled after the Free Little Library. Visitors can bring artwork to leave on display, take artwork that inspires them, or just come enjoy what’s on display in the gallery. The FLAG is not only for the display of work, but also for the free exchange of art and creativity, ensuring these things are accessible for all members of your neighborhood.

Participants: Three to five people to start
Ages: All
Value: $800.00
Requirements: A leadership group of three to five people is required to get the FLAG started. More can be involved with the establishment of the FLAG to program the gallery, promote and celebrate the gallery, and to exchange and display art through it. Please work with the artist to identify an outdoor accessible location for the FLAG. Common places for FLAGs are near parks, libraries and walking trails, as well as on private property along neighborhood walking routes. The neighborhood will identify the site and establish location permissions. The artist will construct and install the FLAG and work with the neighborhood to curate the first exhibit.
