FIND FREE ART

The Golden Glass Orb Hunt is happening again, and we've decided to make it more of a challenge! We heard your feedback and are limiting the hunt to weekends and won't be posting clues this year. During the month of October, Visit Golden and Foothills Art Center will place three glass orbs a day in the city every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. A local artisan, Brad Bedillion, handcrafted these one-of-a-kind glass orbs for you to find and keep.

Each orb is marked with a special tag and instructions for entering to win the Grand Prize.

THE HUNT TIME FRAME

October 4, 2019 – October 31, 2019

HUNT RULES/FAQ

  • The orb hunt begins on October 1st and ends on October 31st

  • Orbs will be placed at random times each day

  • There will not be clues posted

  • Orbs are free if you find them.

  • One orb per person – if you have already found an orb during the hunt please leave the remainder of the orbs for others to find and enjoy.

  • Orbs are placed outdoors rain, snow or shine.

  • We will not always know when orbs have been found since it is up to the "finder" to share that they have discovered it, so keep hunting!

  • Make sure you follow Foothills Art Center and Visit Golden on Instagram to keep up with the latest updates. We will be posting updates on Instagram Stories.

TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL HUNT

  • Three orbs will be placed somewhere in Golden City Limits each Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. View the map here: http://bit.ly/GlassOrbHuntMap (the city is highlighted in purple). You won’t find them on private property, a driving range, in the creek, the middle of an established trail, and other places that would be unsafe for hunters.

SHARE PHOTOS OF YOUR FIND TO WIN THE GRAND PRIZE

If you find an orb, be sure to show it off! Snap a picture of the treasure and where you found it and share it to Instagram with #goldenglassorbhunt. If you don't have Instagram, please email your photo to VisitGolden@cityofgolden.net. This will also enter you to win the grand prize package. Or you can bring your orb into Foothills Art Center to enter to win as well. Foothills Art Center is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday 10 am - 5 pm, Wednesday: Closed, Sunday: 12 pm - 5 pm.

THE GLASS ORB ARTIST

Brad Bedillion, Through the Looking Glass Studio - Firestone, CO

Known for his free-flowing, non-technical approach, Brad loves the collaboration between him and the glass.  He doesn’t fight it. It’s about the energy and the flow and that’s apparent in the work he produces. And not only does he enjoy the process he also enjoys sharing that process with others, working with charities and organizations that bring art to children. Because in the end, art is about the connection, the emotion it brings out in you.
