2017 Art Chase

The annual art chase is a mashup between an art walk and a scavenger hunt. Presented by Allentown Association and the Allentown First Friday Gallery Walk, the Art Chase invites everyone to assemble a team of four. These teams will be asked to complete a set of artistic tasks, similar to this found during scavenger hunts, but with all art-related clues and tasks. Art Chase is set to take place in Allentown, and features a number of artistic prizes. 

Warm-up by catching a few Pokémon, and get your photography skills ready to record your team’s progress on the live stream for Allentown.

This is a great way to get to know your vibrant art community. And what better place to do so, than Allentown?

  • Perform an interpretive dance outside a gallery
  • Find a hidden, mini painting
  • Grab new friends to build a human sculpture
  • Get a tattoo
  • Check-in to one of the evening’s show openings

Teams are invited to dress up, come up with a team name, and maybe even a cheer! The first 17 teams to register get a#artchase17 shirt! 

The team’s actions and performances will be tracked via the GooseChase Adventures app.
