The Art Abandonment Project is your guide to expressing yourself through random acts of art! Create something for the joy of making it, and then leave it for an unsuspecting person to find--be it on a shelf at the library, a park bench, a table at a coffee shop or anywhere a stranger might stumble upon it. Inside you'll discover fun ideas for monthly abandonment challenges, way to connect with other "abandoneers" in the creative community, the value of sharing with others and more.
- Learn the ins and outs of being an abandoneer.
- Get ideas and inspiration for monthly abandoning challenges.
- See examples of abandoned art, and read the stories of the artists as well as the "finders."
- Receive helpful encouragement for letting go of your creations (sometimes it's hard!).
- Connect with the Art Abandonment community and learn how to share your own stories with others.
Join the art abandonment project, set your art fee and make someone's day!

cemetery for the placement of the remaining two Graces, finding the second Grace’s home in a deliciously crumbling, decaying crypt where the walls were frescoed, taking our breath away. This would be the home for the second Grace. We set her on the back altar, under an antique iron cross. This mantle was made for her, and she was very happy to be in her new home. We shut the glass door/gate behind us, leaving her behind, hoping it would be a while before she was discovered. The third Grace found

Fellow abandoneers from every corner of the globe can connect and share and respond to other artists.
