The hunt began at 10am on Saturday morning when the Visual Art Centre opened it’s doors to reveal the 5 paintings with the codes to crack as to where the location of the hidden treasure is.
When we arrived one lady was being filmed as she had already found a piece in the wall at Kingsways park. Having not seen the paintings this was a lucky find.
Upon arrival at the Art centre it was great to see such a good turn out and excited faces. It was as busy as I have ever seen the gallery, which is a great thing. The staff were absolutely lovely and their enthusiasm and friendly conversation was very welcoming.
Luke Jerrem the artist himself was in the centre. I imagine for him this was quite exciting to see such a good turn out and hype surrounding his art.
The art project is such a brilliant idea as it got people to the art centre and it got them out and about, I mean it had us walking for 2 hours so at least we got some exercise that we probably wouldn’t have bothered with before.
The gallery was full of people of all ages trying to crack the codes of the paintings taking photos and jotting down notes and letters into grids to figure it out. I’m quite convinced I know the location of one hidden but if it is there, it isn’t easy to find.
The Hidden treasure is causing quite a stir on the local and national news and the 2nd treasure has now been found in Brigg. It’s just the 3 harder codes to crack now. But who will find the next one and where will it be?
We want to know did you and are you, looking for the treasure and if you went along how did you find the experience?
