Our partners over at Jondo (formerly YPOC.com) just tipped us off to a really cool project they're working on that involves two words we couldn't help but ignore: Art Heist! Believing that an "artful world is a better world," they've taken museum-quality canvas prints out of the museum and to the people. Distributed throughout five hidden Los Angeles locations, these twenty-six 40" x 60" canvases, are just asking to be taken home and proudly hung on your wall.

Best ways to find them? Follow them on Twitter @PhotoGiclee, check out the hashtag #artheist or scan their Facebook page. Below you can see how one winner scoped out her canvas and snatched it.


@CTKing looks around before choosing her victim to heist.


Uh oh. Unfortunately most cars are not made to handle 40" x 60" sized canvases.


What would you do to take home some awesome free oversized art? It really brings out the engineer in you..

What a great campaign! I'll definitely be on the look out for some free art!
