Spothunters is about telling stories, the communication of 'HERE' via the intersection of art indoors, art outdoors, and publishing. Shepard Fairey, Greg Lamarche, Caleb Neelon and Monster Project all began with a common cultural reference point and took it in new and individual directions. While quality and quantity are key, the Spothunters artists are about the unexplored and the unexpected.  The hunt for spots will never end, whether they are higher, bigger, or just plain smarter, because the ideas keep on coming. The Spothunters exhibition brought together these four artists for a show at the New Art Center in Newtonville, Massachusetts in 2006.
