WARRENSBURG — The Warrensburg Arts Commission is hosting the J.C. Carter Scavenger Hunt beginning June 4 through Sept. 6.
Thirteen sculptures by J.C. Carter have been distributed to Warrensburg businesses and the first 40 participants who find all 13 Carter sculptures will receive a custom T-shirt.
To receive a T-shirt, participants should follow the Scavenger Hunt map and visit the sculptures placed in businesses and public spaces around the city, gathering key words at each location.
The map will be available beginning June 4 on Facebook.com/BurgArts as well as the WAC table at the First Friday Art Walk in downtown Warrensburg.
Completed maps should be brought to the WAC table at the First Friday Art Walks on July 2 or Aug. 6 for a chance to win a T-shirt.
“Many of our projects to promote Warrensburg art culture during this past year were put on hold due to the need for social distancing,” Eleanore Eye, WAC member, said. “This scavenger hunt is a project that we adapted and are excited to promote local businesses and Warrensburg’s art culture.”
These 13 assembled metal sculptures were donated by the family of J.C. Carter to the WAC.
Carter, a life-long Warrensburg resident, created found-object sculptures in his retirement years, transforming bike parts, garden tools and pistons into birds, robots and jazz musicians. Carter's sculptures have been displayed in city buildings, parks and the UCM Gallery of Art and Design for the public to enjoy.
