#modoarthunt & eastside culture crawl
This year, Modo was a proud Platinum Sponsor of the 17th Annual Eastside Culture Crawl. You may have seen our staff and volunteers travelling around to participating studios or welcoming guests to 1000 Parker Street. Not only did our team welcome guests, they also passed on some info about a special project – the #ModoArtHunt.
Visiting the Hungry Thumb Studios on Main Street at night is a real treat.
Working with Esther Rausenberg, executive director of the Eastside Culture Crawl, Modo created an digital scavenger hunt designed to get the public out visiting as many artists’ studios as possible. Posting clues on our blog, Facebook and Twitter, we asked for photos of unique and thought-provoking art to be tagged with #ModoArtHunt, with each photo becoming one entry into our prize draw.

In the end, we received over 100 entries and shared the beautiful work of Culture Crawl artists with our extended social networks.
Congratulations to Lauren B. for winning our grand prize, which includes $200 toward a piece of art and a bottle of wine to share with the artists, as well as a 1-year membership and $100 carsharing credit. We’d also like to congratulate runners up Jason V. and Jennifer F., who each won a 1-year membership and $50 carsharing credit. (Winners chosen at random.)
We had an amazing weekend celebrating local art, meeting hundreds of talented artists in our community and discovering some of the hidden treasures of Vancouver. Hope to see you all next year!
