Dig: A Search For Captain Paine’s Ill-Gotten Loot
1997, tourist brochure/map, record album, certificates
Convergence International Arts Festival, Providence, RI

A treasure hunt through downtown Providence, RI. MTAA distributed brochures throughout the city in hopes of luring the citizens into a mass treasure hunt. The map led one through historic landmarks of Providence to a small used record store. Among the stacks of vinyl was a special album detailing how to receive one’s treasure. The map was also printed in a local free weekly paper.
