TAKE THE #ANONYMOUSECHALLENGE

Street art serves many purposes: to surprise, delight, claim space, make a statement, promote change, and more! During the pandemic, people have been doing small things to their own yards to create a sense of community or bring joy at a time when we are physically distancing.

Are you ready for the #AnonymouseChallenge?

  1. Go for a discovery walk and take note of anything you see of interest. It might be a mural, a sign, a note on the sidewalk, a garden statue, or something else entirely.
  2. Create something for your own community.
  3. You could draw a picture or write a message using sidewalk chalk.
  4. You could hang something in a window or tie something to a tree branch.
  5. You could paint a rock or find something to display in your yard, balcony, or garden.

Here are some examples:

When you are finished, share your pictures on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook using the hashtag #AnonymouseChallenge and tagging your local participating bookstore. Or, e-mail your submissions to your local participating bookstore by Saturday, April 24, 2021 (Indie Bookstore Day). Here’s what you could win:
