Local Artist Anthony Pego Creates Art Scavenger Hunt

Oklahoma City artist Anthony Pego is not new to the scene, but a lot of his ideas have been. Pego’s primary focus is making  jewelry, and now he wants you to hunt for it.

Pego has placed five pieces of artwork around the Oklahoma City metro area. They are obscure locations, and it may be somewhere you walk or drive past every day. The people who are placing these pieces have posted GPS coordinates and a location on Instagram, like a modern day geotagging game. Keep your eye on social media for clues.

Pego has attached a handmade necklace to the back of each piece of artwork with a note; “Congratulations, this is yours”. His mission is to share his artwork and jewelry by people just stumbling upon, or searching for, rather than purchasing it in store. The note on the back of the artwork asks that you share your findings through social media.

Pego has taken this old school marketing approach and made it modern and interactive. Start hunting!
