Example of a "clue".

The artist creates hand painted miniature buffalo paintings and hides them in the public spaces of Jamestown. This is the seventh annual miniature art hunt that William has performed during the past seven years. The residents of the town are invited to study visual clues, released throughout the week on the internet and the Jamestown Sun Web Site (Area Voices Section – Culture Builds Community Blog) in order to help you find the hidden art. Winners get to keep the original work of art and also claim an additional prize to be awarded at the art center.

There will be a special meet and greet event, informational booth, draw with the artist event and information available during the art hunt. All of “Mr. Billy’s” past students and anyone else interested are welcome to come draw with the artist at an art-in-the-park get together/picnic. This will occur at 1:00 pm on Sunday afternoon. William Hessian has performed over 20 miniature art hunts all across the united states, from the East Coast to the West Coast and all around the Midwest.
