#CreativeUtah: Unintentional Art

Jun 26, 2015

The Utah Arts Festival is now underway, so #CreativeUtah No. 5 is the final challenge in our creativity series. We've partnered with the Festival to inspire you to see the art around you. This week, we're asking you to find "Unintentional Art." We were inspired by Davy Rothbart, creator of Found Magazine. The idea of the magazine is simple, they collect and publish stuff that readers have found and sent into them - notes, photos, cards, whatever. Rothbart says it's a way to connect to people we share the world with. RadioWest producer Elaine Clark spoke with him.

Share a picture of your unintentional art find on social media with the hashtag #CreativeUtah. You can also use the Found Magazine tags #FoundNote or #FoundPhoto, and the Utah Arts Festival tag #ArtLivesHere.

To learn more about Found Magazine and to see some of their found gems, visit them at foundmagazine.com

Utah Arts Festival runs through Sunday, June 28th. While you're there, visit the media lounge, where KUER has a sound booth for you to record an audio postcard. Stop into the Fear No Film portion of the festival as well. Several KUER VideoWest films are being featured, including Of One Heart, in competition for Utah Short Film of the Year.
