Michigan woman starts 'abandoned art' scavenger hunt

CLYDE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - An eastern Michigan woman has started an art project by painting local scenes on various driftwood and rocks, and placing them in different areas to create a scavenger hunt for residents.

The Times Herald reports that about a half dozen pieces have been discovered as of Thursday in 41-year-old Heather Gierman's "Abandoned Art Project."

After painting scenes such as lighthouses and the Blue Water Bridge, Gierman will place the piece somewhere, take a photo and post it on Facebook. The Clyde Township artist says anyone who finds a piece gets to keep it.

Gierman says the project is also to get people moving and outside to enjoy the area. She plans on abandoning art all summer.

Locations for Gierman's art have included St. Clair, Marysville, Port Huron and Lexington.
