The Real Small Art League is an ongoing effort to inspire random acts of artistic kindness and creative awareness
We believe a little work of art can go a long way.
In 2007, the Real Small Art League began posting art in publically approved areas: community bulletin boards, creative businesses or free art exchanges around the world. International collaborations lead to group exhibitions in England, Singapore, Australia and Canada. Within six months, nearly 200 artists had contributed to the project.
In 2009, Real Small Art 2.0 developed placement venues for creative exchange in geocaches. GPS positioned containers allowed Real Small Artists to track, monitor and converse with a creative community connected through new media. Pieces of Real Small Art began circulating though the underground trade channels of geocachers across the United States.
In 2010, Real Small Art launched Free to a Good Home, sending over 275 tiny paintings to nominated recipients. Each piece of art arrived with an explanation, a message of gratitude and an invitation to respond. Real Small Art found homes along the east coast, spreading inspiration and messages of gratitude to the participants.
In 2011, The Real Small Art League founding artists collaborated with community groups to spark independent projects. Check the growing list of partners here.
In 2013, Real Small Art league founder Tiffany Glass Ferreira introduced a new series of tiny Owls with a creative team of Real Small Artist Kids. Watch this series unfold, beginning July 1, 2013, with clues and images shared as it happens: www.twitter.com/realsmallart and www.instagram.com/iknowtiffany#
The Real Small Art League does not endorse any form of property destruction for this project. We abide by all participating venue rules and communicate with business owners before adding their location to our project.
