First Friday Art Chase is back!

To celebrate the arts in Buffalo, the Allentown Association and the Allentown First Friday Gallery Walk present the “2017 Art Chase” scavenger hunt. On the evening of Friday, September 1st, neighbors of all ages are invited to create teams of four to compete in fun challenges around Allen Street from reenacting famous paintings to performing an impromptu haiku. With stellar local prizes for the winning team, this communal event stimulates creative exploration and support of the city’s vibrant art scene.

★ Plus, the first 17 teams to register get an #artchase17 shirt! ★

So gather your teammates, get your game faces on, and register!

…because we’ve got quite a night planned:
➤ Perform an interpretive dance outside a gallery?
➤ Find a hidden, mini painting?
➤ Grab new friends to build a human sculpture?
➤ Get a tattoo?!
➤ …or even just check-in to one of the evening’s show openings?

And we’ll be tracking the whole game’s progress on the super fun GooseChase Adventures app! So warm-up by catching a few Pokémon & get your photography skills ready to record your team’s progress on the live stream for Allentown.

The Allentown First Friday Gallery Walks are funded in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; administered by Arts Services Initiative of WNY, Inc.
