Hey there, adventurers! Welcome to the THIRD Fargo Art Marathon, presented by The Arts Partnership with sponsorship from these fine folks: Myriad MobileMezzaluna, and the Fargo-Moorhead Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.

(Don’t have the app? It’s free at the Apple store and Android market.)

How it works

The idea behind the Art Marathon app is get you out and about on a series of art-related adventures and responding to them through the app or your social media channels. There are three ways to complete the marathon:

1.) Download the app and document completion of the 26 events using the QR codes.

Within the app, you’ll find 26 challenges for you to complete at some point between April 26 and May 10. In some cases, you’ll need to attend an event. In others, you’ll need to find a work of art or complete an action. In all cases, you’ll find a QR code at each of the 26 stops along the way.  Scan the QR code within the app and complete the challenge. Keep your eye on the leaderboard to see how you’re faring against your fellow (art) runners. You don’t have to complete the events in any particular order, but you do have to complete all 26 of them. The fastest individual, fastest team, individual who completes the course last before 6 pm, May 2 (CST), OR

2.) You can micro-curate your encounters with 26 events on the course using your Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram account.

You can participate by sharing your experience of any 26 challenges to Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram with the hashtag #FMAM15 and #TAP on any of those platforms. Don’t forget to like Art Marathon on Facebook and follow The Arts Partnership on the social media platform of choice.

In addition to the challenges within the app, we’d LOVE to see you get out to any other arts events happening within the Art Marathon timeframe. You can use any of these as part of the 26-event micro-curation of the marathon(use the #FMAM hashtag to share your experiences on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram). Even if you are competing in the app division, venture forth and enjoy those, too.
