For the 19th consecutive year, the Downtown Racine Corporation has unveiled a public art project in Downtown Racine. This year’s project featured a set of three flowerpots. 20 artists were selected to adorn the pots with their creativity. 20 sets of pots are scattered through Downtown.
Similar to last year’s public art project that featured benches, there will be a self-guided scavenger hunt that people can participate in at their leisure all summer long. Each set of pots has a question that related to them. Any person wanting to participate will be awarded a $5 Downtown Gift card (valid at over 100 locations) for answering at least 15 questions correctly. If all 20 questions are answered correctly, in addition to the gift certificate, participants will also be entered to win a Downtown Racine Prize Pack worth over $100.
“Each year I am so impressed with the artist’s creations and this year is no exception. The flowerpots beautify our downtown and give families yet another reason to come and view the art and explore our phenomenal shops and restaurants.” -Kelly Kruse, DRC Executive Director
Scavenger hunt forms can be picked up at The Downtown Racine Corporation (425 Main St.) or downloaded at racinedowntown.com or Facebook.com/RacineDowntown.
