I Spy blue

Is it impolite to stare? Not in The Galleries, and not while playing our I Spy Artwork Scavenger Hunt. The latest version of the game, which shows 12 mystery artwork fragments from the Clay exhibition, is now available and waiting for super sleuths like your family and friends to crack the case.

It’s not easy, so bring your power of observation with you, and prepare to stare at and study lots of pottery. The Clay exhibition features hundreds of works from dozens of artists, and we’re sure you’ll leave The Galleries with a new admiration for the beautiful, clever and intricate details in this incredible collection.

Want to Play?

I Spy Artwork Scavenger Hunt is free and available to all ages in The Galleries. Just stop by the front desk and ask for a copy, or pull up the digital version on our website at https://bit.ly/ispyclay.

The Galleries are open Tuesday – Friday, 10-5 and Saturday 11-4 in the Cabarrus Arts Council, 65 Union Street South in downtown Concord.

The Galleries’ Clay exhibition is sponsored by Uwharrie Bank.
