LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton is holding a family-friendly scavenger hunt this month.

There's an unusual scavenger hunt called Art Foray going on right now at LongHouse Reserve.

Nine local artists have hidden examples of their work around the 16-acre reserve and sculpture garden on Hand's Creek Road in East Hampton for people to find, and finders may turn out to be keepers.

It works like this: Hunters search the property – trees, shrubs, under rocks, it's all fair game – for hidden art. Take a photo of it, including the artist's name, and send it to #longhouseartforay on Instagram or Facebook, to be entered into a drawing to win that very piece, or email the information to [email protected] with the finder's name.

A free game guide identifying the artworks and giving clues to their location is available upon arrival. Participants have been asked not to touch or move the art. Participating artists are Brianne Ashe, Scott Bluedorn, Rossa Cole, Conrad DeKwiatkowski, Fitzhugh Karol, Laurie Lambrecht, Mica Marder, Alexander Perez, and Almond Zigmund. Mr. Bluedorn curated and produced Art Foray.

The family-friendly game will end at 4 p.m. on Oct. 31, Halloween, when the names of winners will be drawn out of a hat.
