What is this project?

In collaboration with Partners for Active Living, SPARTA Bus, and the City of Spartanburg, visual artist and Spartanburg resident Kris Neely will move through out the city of Spartanburg for six months. The project is intended to call the community's attention to bus shelters, bike racks, and city trails.

How can I participate?


Step 1: Kris Neely will move through Spartanburg in ways that are not his typical ways of experiencing this place. He will begin to create studies and sketches that will be used for the creation of one larger piece of art.

Step 2: Kris will place these studies throughout the city in places that he noticed during his travels. Clues will be placed on this blog along with photographic images of the artifacts.

Step 3: Participants are invited to follow the clues to find these small pieces of art. Finders keepers. We invite you to leave a comment on this site letting us know the work has been found and taken. You might even want to post a picture of yourself in the location. Please see Step 5 for more details about a what we hope you will do with this art.

Step 4: Citizens are encouraged to send in postcard reflections about the way they move through Spartanburg. Poems, art work, and collages are just some of the creative ways you can reflect. (Children are encouraged to participate.) Please be aware that by submitting a card you are agreeing for the card to be exhibited in a culminating show and on this site. No postcards will be returned and decisions about whether reflections will be posted are left to the sole discretion of the Artist-in-Transit.

Step 5: Participate in the culminating art show (TBA). Participants who find the artifacts are encouraged to bring them to the culminating show for display. These pieces will be yours to keep after the event. Kris will share the larger work that resulted from the studies of movement and systems in the City of Spartanburg. Postcard reflections will be on display. Information about active living and public art initiatives in Spartanburg will be available at this event.

Step 6: Consider making a personal adjustment in the way you move each day through Spartanburg!
