Snail Hunt

We hope you like our street art snails. We made them just for you.

If you love one so much, that you can’t help but take it with you, we totally understand.

1. Give it a nice home, with lots of love.

2. Post a photo of your new friend, with a tag like #ECSnails, #ECArtists, #MercedSnails, #SnailInvasion, or even #Snails.

The EC artists are checking Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr to see if any of their snails have been seen.

Happy hunting!

Some photos of a few of the artists installing the Snail Invasion street art project.

From left to right, Oscar Onsurez, Ivan Hernandez, Yadira Prado, and Richard Chavez were in my group.  Since I had the camera, they’re the ones getting famous today.  Oh well… more installations to come.

This is a series, showing how you might miss the art around you, if you’re not paying attention.

October 2013 EC Snails: The Invasion Begins

After they escaped from the kiln, the snails made their way across the classroom, out onto the 3rd floor landing, onto the elevator, down to the 1st floor, through the galleries, and out of the Arts Center…

Special Thanks go out to EC Artists Anne Marsh, Melissa Fuentes, Hilda Cotta, Michael Cordova, and our awesome intern Lulu Gamez, for this fantastic stop motion video.
