Art Smart is an interactive scavenger hunt that incorporates online and offline behaviors to motivate citizens in Jackson to seek out public art and explore resources available to their families. With a focus on family, this project was inspired to make the process of viewing art not only engaging, but also informational.

There are a number of public arts scattered throughout Jackson, Michigan that hold a great amount of historical and cultural significance to the community. Through our interviews with citizens, we found that kids activities are the best way to engage both kids and parents. After a series of brainstorming, sketching and communicating with our partner, we came up with this Art Smart game.

There are four steps to complete this scavenger hunt: complete the online trivia game to unlock the scavenger hunt map; visit the art sites and take photo; upload photos and share on social network; get the personalized certificate with your own photos.

We picked 6 art pieces for our initial design. The trivia game's framework is made for easy reuse with new pieces and clues and can be used for a variety of projects that incorporate Google Maps.

    I was the "communicator" for the team. Along with working with clients to discuss solutions, I contributed in the overall ideation of the project and helped design certificate, poster, and early prototypes. One thing I learned fro this project was the challenges time and cost and how pivotal communication can be in completing a project on a fashionable matter.
