Dynamic Duo : Scavenger Hunt, Subtext

Over the past couple years, the artwork, illustration, wheat pasting, and sticker bombing of Exist 1981 and Tocayo have flooded our city.  From restaurant interiors and galleries to street signs and back alleys, these two prolific artists have meshed their contrasting styles and continually teamed up whenever an opportunity arose.  On Friday, February 3rd Exist and Tocayo will debut their latest tag team effort, a comprehensive gallery show at Subtext in Little Italy.

The Dynamic Duo have been cranking on a ton of new work for this show, and to celebrate tomorrow night's opening we put together a city wide scavenger hunt with some pretty rad prizes. Here's the deal, we placed 5 cardboard posters around town, and if you track down one of these and bring it to Subtext Gallery tomorrow night you'll win a free t-shirt or screen print from the Dynamic Duo.

Only one per person, and you must cash in your golden ticket tomorrow night between 6-10pm at Subtext Gallery. Drop us a tweet or facebook post when/if you find one.  Happy hunting...

**Update** All five clues have been found. See you all at Subtext tomorrow!

Clue #1

Clue #2

Clue #3
