What happens when you make a stranger's day?
This week's final free project in the 10 x 10 Series is a collaboration with our friends at Prismacolor. The Mystery Project challenges artists to experiment with the unexpected. Every participant will receive a mystery project kit, which includes a free Prismacolor Brush l Fine Art Marker in a surprise color and a secret theme to guide your work. Create a token of inspiration using the tools in your kit — it could be a drawing, a zine, a sculpture, or a collage — then install it in a public place for a stranger to discover. Just remember to document your mystery project and send us a photograph! We'll share your creative surprises with the entire community online.

The Mystery Project is an opportunity to make a stranger's day. Everyone who signs up for the project will receive a free art marker from our friends at Prismacolor and a secret theme. Create an artwork in any medium, using your new tool and the enclosed theme, and leave it in a public place — it could be on a telephone pole, in your local café, or slipped between the pages of a book. Then document your tiny installation and send us a photo. You can tweet @arthouse and @PrismacolorUS and tag it #mysteryproject, or post it on facebook.com/arthousecoop and tag @Prismacolor or just email email@example.com. We'll exhibit the photographs of your hidden surprises online — and you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that your work will add a jolt of inspiration to a stranger's day.
