Found Art! project out to heal the world
By Maria Puente, USA TODAY
You are finishing up your usual overpriced latte in your local java
joint when you notice it at the next table - a tiny sculpted wall
plaque leaning against the sugar caddy. You look around, wondering
whether someone forgot it. It has a sticker on it saying "Found Art!"
with a Web address. Suddenly, it clicks: You've just found a free
piece of art and an invitation to join a growing global art project.
Found Art! (found-art.com) was born a year ago, the result of artist
Sharon Vogt's desire "to do something positive" after Sept. 11 - or,
at the very least, make someone somewhere smile.

Seems like a great way to teach kids that art can make a difference
in the world?
