Explore Your 704 is a Clean Graffiti Scavenger Hunt, powered by OrthoCarolina, promoting city-pride and has weekly winners.

A Clean Graffiti scavenger hunt. This has been on our bucket list for at least 4 years now. Sure, a traditional scavenger hunt could have happened at any time, but we’re anything but traditional. Working alongside our awesome client, OrthoCarolina, we have created the first ever Clean Graffiti scavenger hunt called “Explore Your 704.” And it’s pretty epic.

Explore Your 704 is a scavenger hunt using Clean Graffiti throughout Charlotte. Contest runs Oct. 10- Nov. 10.

Explore Your 704 is the first scavenger hunt of its kind in Charlotte, NC. We created three graphic designs in partnership with Gustave Soto, local Charlotte graphic designer. We then translated those designs into our custom stencils to use for the Clean Graffiti portion. If you’re unfamiliar with Clean Graffiti, we clean an image onto a dirty sidewalk with a pressure washer. Don’t worry, it’s just water). This Scavenger Hunt was a way to make a game of exploring the Queen City’s finest neighborhoods.

Explore Your 704 is your chance to get out, explore Charlotte and win tons of great prizes. Check out ExploreYour704.com or more details.

Twelve clues will guide you to three different sidewalk art images that exude city-pride. Each of the three images will be labeled (1 of 3, 2 of 3, 3 of 3) and there are 4 unique locations per image. (check out this link to download the pdf with all of the hints). Your mission is to use the clues to find these Clean Graffiti images. Snap a photo and upload to Instagram using #ExploreYour704. Each individual photo posted is considered an entry to win (aka you do not have to find all three to be a winner).

Here is what the images look like:


Clean Graffiti was used to create these eco-friendly images on the sidewalk. Find one, post to Instagram using #ExploreYour704 and be entered to win.
