The Montclair Art Museum’s African American Cultural Committee has organized a Summertime Scavenger Art Hunt, with proceeds to benefit a Yard School of Art scholarship.

A series of galleries and art destinations throughout the tri-state area has been selected. At each site, participants must decipher a clue about an artwork by an African-American artist, find the work referenced, and take a selfie with it. Each photo is worth a certain point value, based on the difficulty of the clue. The first team to document all 10 clues wins.

Participants can join at any time through Sept. 5. The cost to play is $85 for families and $50 for individuals; the fee is 50/50 split between funding a Yard School of Art Scholarship in the name of the winner and prizes for the winner. Mail a check to Martha Kelshaw, Montclair Art Museum, 3 South Mountain Ave., Montclair, NJ 07042.

Instructions and clues are at montclairartmuseum.org/aacc. For more information, contact Casey Carpenter, AACC publicity chair, at 973-580-2163 or Gioya McRae, AACC events chair, at 862-216-4025.
