For the fourth year, residents will be searching for 10 buffaloes of the miniature painted variety starting Friday in this year’s Cabin Fever Buffalo Art Hunt.
The miniature buffaloes are original art by William Hessian, who created the hunt. The art pieces are each 1 inch by 1 1/2 inches.
In past years, the Buffalo Art Hunt occurred in Jamestown parks. However, due to the frigid temperatures this winter, the hidden buffaloes will be inside public buildings in the city.
As in the past, Hessian will provide clues to aid the hunters. The clues will be on his Web site www. williamhessian.com and the first 10 visual clues will appear Friday and continue through Cabin Fever Days or until all the buffaloes are found. The clues will also be posted in the Arts Center window.
The miniature buffaloes are hidden in plain sight. Nothing has to be moved, climbed or dug out to find them, Hessian said. The winner who finds the white buffalo gets to keep the art and will be awarded the grand prize donated by the Jamestown Arts Center. All other found buffaloes can be kept as well and prizes will be awarded for finding them. Although residents are welcome to look for all 10 art pieces, Hessian said he’d appreciate it if they keep only one.
