ACP Hosts Ceramic Scavenger Hunt in Town This Saturday

FiNDERS KEEPERS: Winners from the Arts Council of Princeton’s 2021 Ceramic Scavenger Hunt pose with their found pottery. Now in its third year, the Hunt provides an opportunity to explore downtown Princeton while searching for handmade ceramics hidden around town.

The Arts Council of Princeton (ACP) has announced the return of the Ceramic Scavenger Hunt on Saturday, October 15 from 1-3 p.m. Participants are invited to explore downtown Princeton while on the hunt for the 20 pieces of pottery hidden throughout town by the ACP.

To join the free event, follow the ACP on Instagram at @artscouncilofprinceton. From 1-3 p.m., ACP will post hints as to where to find hidden pieces of handmade ceramics. Find one and it’s yours to keep.

“The Ceramic Scavenger Hunt was born in 2020 when social distancing was in full effect,” said Melissa Kuscin, ACP programming/marketing manager. “It was so popular that we brought it back with double the ceramics in 2021, and it was so fun to see folks running around town on the hunt. Now that we’re in our third year, we’ve upped the ante by creating pieces exclusively for this event, meaning the only way to ever get your hands on these ceramics is by finding them during the event.”

Any participant who finds a ceramic piece is also entered into a drawing for the grand prize of a complimentary ACP Family Membership, valued at $100, an ACP tote bag, and a $10 gift card to Small World Coffee.

“The beauty of this event is that not only is it fun to use your detective skills to try to identify where the piece is hiding, but it gets you out and about in town in its peak of autumnal beauty,” said Kuscin. “It’s a great time for residents and visitors alike.”
