Created by Didi Dunphy, “Excursion” is public artwork modeled after the idea of a scavenger hunt. The art is then spread across historic sites and the town of Cumming as well as the University of North Georgia Cumming campus.

“Excursion” begins on the first floor of the Cumming campus building at 300 Aquatic Circle. On campus, a Quick Response Code links visitors to a map. At each location, they will find another QR Code. Some of the QR Codes will be very visible, and others will be obscured and may take a little exploration.

Once the QR Code is located, another scan reveals an artist video work inspired by the location, including footage taken at the location investigating the nature of travel.

The UNG Cumming campus is open from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday. Visitor parking is available. Call 470-239-3102 to schedule a viewing time.
