Easter Art Hunt underway this week

Local artist Zack Smithey will be painting the town red so to speak in his second Easter Art Hunt.

During the week before Easter in 2015, the St. Charles, Mo. native gave away 1,000 works of art to scavenger hunters who followed clues on his Facebook page.

Smithey is back at it again and this year's hunt has already begun! During the week-long scavenger hunt, 1,000 pieces of art will be hidden around the city and up for grabs to their finders. The hunt will culminate on the Delmar Loop on Saturday, March 26 where 300 paintings will be given away and Smithey will be signing paintings found throughout the week.

Smithey wrote in a Facebook post that he would post photo clues for seekers to uncover the hidden art. To join the hunt, follow his Facebook profile where the hints will be posted. It's an event that's fun for the whole family.
