Or, the cutest date I’ve been on thus far.
This is a fun thing to do with friends, family or your significant other! It sparks conversation and collaboration and will definitely be an adventure you’ll remember.
A fun fact about me is that the solution to a lot more of my dilemmas than you’d think are to do a scavenger hunt. And so when faced with the dilemma of having visited basically all the museums in town and not really being people that appreciated art too much, I decided to create a scavenger hunt for my boyfriend and I to go on while visiting the art gallery!
I didn’t know what to expect at all since the last time I’d been there was for a grade 7 field trip. So my items to search for were based on what I thought we’d find, what I hoped we’d find and what I thought was just plain funny.
The whole list is a hoot and a half but here are some gems:
- someone whose face looks like they did their homework but forgot it at home
- a bunch of grapes
- the first painting by an artist we recognize
- a painting bigger than your outstretched arms
- a toilet
- the time it takes to find the Condensation Cube (which was something I did remember from my previous visits)
- a tree in all 4 seasons (can be different pictures obviously)
- a visitor’s garbage left in the modern art section (I thought I was hilarious for thinking this one up, like what if it wasn’t just a tissue? What if it’s ART)
- a painting that looks like a bad powerpoint template
And so on and so forth, you get the picture. (ART JOKES)
It was a huge success! We had fun strolling around, actually loving some paintings for real (we’re not completely uncultured animals) and discussing what we thought merited crossing something off the list! I think we only didn’t get about 6 items which is pretty good in my books!
Something to note is that it’s important to not be rude around the art or other guests just because you’re being a little creative and different with how you enjoy these paintings. This is obvious but I’m just putting it out there.
Definitely let me know if you plan to try this out, I’d love to hear how it goes or help brainstorm items to look for!
