Free art scattered around Newcastle yesterday – The Herald 8/3/13

I had an exciting day yesterday after I participating in Free Art Friday – Newcastle. We encouraged Hunter Arts Network artists to leave their artworks around the streets for anyone to find & keep for FREE! I dropped four drawings, at Charlestown square, Merewether Pedestrian Underpass, Obelisk & Civic Park Fountain & I heard from this finder soon after, they sent me a lovely email! I haven’t heard from the other finders yet. I was stoked that Charlestown square shared my photo of the drawing I left in their carpark & appearing in this article in The Herald!
