Lost Art is an interactive street art project. I find objects in the street, paint street scenes onto them, and then leave them out to be found on the streets where they were painted. It's an exercise in recycling, in letting go, and in reaching out. I'm curious to know whether the paintings will be found, or if they will remain discarded the way their canvases were before I painted them. So if you find one of the pieces, please let me know in the comments!

Lost Art #7: East 1st Street, Bethlehem PA
This week's Lost Art painting, number seven in the series, was left in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, on the East 1st Street walkway below the famous Steel Stacks. It's the second painting to be left in PA so far. Just as I left it, there was a large crowd arriving to watch the USA-Portugal World Cup match on a giant outdoor tv. I wonder if some lucky soccer fan will notice the painting as they pass by!
This painting, acrylic on found plastic dinner tray, 19 3/4" x 14 5/8", was left on East 1st Street in Bethlehem, PA, on June 22, 2014 at 4pm.
