About the Event
Each spring, 401 Richmond hosts a building-wide Art Hunt!
Our amazing and creative tenant community have painted, drawn, printed, designed, and sculpted OVER 140 one-of-a-kind Artist Trading Cards which will be hidden throughout our 200,000 square-foot heritage building!
In the style of a traditional Easter Egg Hunt, visitors are invited to roam the building and find the secret locations of the hidden cards. It’s finders keepers so arrive on time and get hunting because prizes go quickly!
Your new treasure also becomes your ticket to a FREE lively post-hunt event hosted in Urbanspace Gallery, where you’ll be able to meet the artists, trade cards, have a bite, and even make your own card with help from artist Janine Lindgren! Support young artists at a pop-up marketplace, or pose with your pals in the VIBE Arts photo booth! Join us for an art-filled evening! Stay tuned as we reveal participating artists and the unique artworks that could be yours – follow us on Twitter or Instagram @401richmond #401arthunt #401events!
Admission is free! Happy Hunting!
