Guerilla art, also referred to as "street art", is a method of art making where the artist leaves anonymous art pieces in public places. It is often an installation in an unauthorized location. It is a way for an artist to express their views and opinions to a large audience in an anonymous way.

In contrast to popular belief, guerilla art does not have to be done with spray paint. There is no one motivation for making guerilla art. However, popular reasons include statement making, the sharing of ideas, the desire to send out good karma, and plain fun. http://guerilla-art.wikidot.com/what-is-guerilla-art

"Guerilla art has arisen as a small underground movement starting in the 1980s, partially as a response to the perceived takeover of public space by commercial interests, the perceived banality of many authorized public art pieces, and the frequent lack of authorized exhibition opportunities for artists."

So help us create guerilla art in our own community. Our goal is to have fun, create art for all and to encourage artists of all ages and abilities to simply not to be afraid to create. To us, guerilla art is more than visual art---- flash mobs, street music, yarn bombing, gardens, videos, projections, dancing if no one is looking, radios playing on the outside of buildings are all forms of guerilla art. Show us yours.

We will be showcasing guerilla art during the 2013 Year of the Arts in Westerville but encourage others to submit their guerilla art examples.
