Papergirl SA # 1

papergirl 1

Papergirl is an art project which, in the style of American paperboys, distributes rolled art pieces by bicycle to random passers-by in the streets.

The event itself consists of an exhibition, distribution of the art (by bicycle) and a party.

The Papergirl Project has been taking place annually during summer since 2006. Now Papergirl is coming to Cape Town, in 2010.

“The basic idea with the project is to bring art to the public in a different way than normal; to surprise people and bring them into contact with art in their everyday life. The idea of distributing art by bike came from the search for new ways to bring art straight to society, and have fun doing so!”

They’re currently offering anyone the chance to submit work.
