You could score yourself one of 300 limited edition artworks as part of a one-off augmented reality treasure hunt series by Brisbane City Council’s Sunny Side Up Outdoor Gallery, supported by Arts Queensland.
Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said to celebrate Sunny Side Up’s final weeks of display, three treasure hunt events would take over the city on Sunday 21 March.
Cr Schrinner said the first 100 participants of each event were set to walk away with a limited-edition print signed by Brisbane’s coolest new artists – Phoebe Paradise, Jordan Azcune, and Julia Scott Green.
“This is an incredible way to wrap up another amazing public art exhibition that has showcased Brisbane’s best up-and-coming artists,” Cr Schrinner said.
“It’s no ordinary treasure hunt – participants will be required to unlock all five augmented reality artworks across the Outdoor Gallery to successfully reach the end of the scavenger hunt and reveal the final location to collect their prize.
“You’ll have to be quick as only the first 100 people to complete each of the three different trails will be able to collect one of these limited-edition prizes.
“In total, 300 artworks will be up for grabs so if you’re looking to start your own personal art collection, there’s no better time than now.”
The public can also participate in the Outdoor Gallery Treasure Hunt outside of the three events (from 21 March to 18 April) and at their own pace to go into the draw to win a $150 Museum of Brisbane gift voucher.
Sunny Side Up has been curated by Sarah Thomson and Alex Holt and includes a number of talks, tours and engagements that have been running since 30 November 2020 and will close on 18 April 2021.
