Science and art -- two distinctly different disciplines -- combine to create an exciting new family-fun adventure called ArtQuest, a hunt for art that began on August 8, 2008.

In this ingenious high-tech adventure, visitors use a Global Positioning System (GPS) to locate unique, interactive art forms such as a living willow maze and sculptures capturing wind to make sound and light to make shadow. Other installations invite geocachers to add their own poetry and handiwork.

Sculptures are hidden at 11 secret, family-friendly destinations in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains near Cooperstown.

Latitude and longitude coordinates for these hidden treasures are provided on the ArtQuestGeoCache.org Web site, along with visitor information about each location including things to do, admission fees and hours of operation.

Individuals who visit at least 10 of the 11 sites qualify to win two Cobia 29er trail bikes valued at $1,800. They simply return to ArtQuestGeoCache.org to complete an online survey about their experience.

The Upper Catskill Community Council of the Arts (UCCCA) received funding for this program from the Cultural Tourism Initiative, a project of the Arts and Business Council of New York and the New York State Council on the Arts.

ArtQuest is a partnership between the Upper Catskill Community Council of the Arts (UCCCA) and Cooperstown/Otsego County Tourism. ArtQuest sculpture installations are made possible with funding support from New York State Senator James L. Seward.

With the exception of a few site locations, it will be open to explorers year round through July 31, 2009.

To begin your hunt, visit ArtQuestGeoCache.org where you will also find a helpful lodging and trip planning link to ThisIsCooperstown.com.
