Lompoc hosts Art Hunt event

By Rebecca Rose

The Lompoc Valley Art Association is hosting Art Hunt, a free local art-themed event from Oct. 18 through 21. 

The event offers participants a chance to find free art work through a scavenger hunt. Clues to the hunt can be found on social media including Instagram and Facebook. On Instagram, a photo of a painting, sculpture, or other work will be posted with the hashtags #LompocArtHunt, #CypressGalleryLompoc, #CypressGallery, and #explorelompoc. On Facebook, participants can find the same clues on the Cypress Gallery page at 

The event is open to all ages and there is no limit to the number of pieces participants can find and keep. No private residences will be used as hiding places, and the works of art will be in plain sight when finding the location. A tag with “I’m Yours” will be prominently displayed on the prize artwork. Participants are asked to post on Facebook when they find the piece.

A reception for the Art Hunt is scheduled for Oct. 21 from 2 to 4 p.m at the gallery, 119 E. Cypress, Lompoc, with a chance to meet the artists whose work is included in the contest. For more information, visit
