A festival exploring the odd, ordinary and ingenious in the spectacle of daily life. Art in Odd Places aims to stretch the boundaries of communication in the public realm by presenting artworks in all disciplines outside the confines of traditional public space regulations. AiOP reminds us that public spaces function as the epicenter for diverse social interactions and the unfettered exchange of ideas.

An open letter from a mother during the Art in Odd Places festival
Responses such as this help us carry on what we do. Thank you Jenny for participating!
I just wanted to say thank you for giving my family the oppprtunity [sic] to explore 14th street today.
The girls were happy to hunt for hidden art and to be presented with performance art as they walked down the street.
Even when we returned home to Astoria they were still looking on lamp posts for magnetic art and wondering if that oddly dressed person was "doing a show".
I have attached a few photos from our day. more than one email will be arriving.
Feel free to use them on your blog.

I should add that my daughter, she's 6, wants to do it in Astoria next year. Just now she emptied out the little box Amy Young used for her project, filled it with her own drawing and wanted to go stick it on something metal outside on 30th Avenue,
