Map Puzzle

Yesterday I placed about a hundred of the "maptiles" on ledges in downtown Grand Rapids. If you found one and know someone else who found one then compare tiles. They may match! All the tiles put together would form a 1/16 scale version of the entire Map, and it would be 8 feet square!

I'll be putting more out today. Let me know what you find......


  1. Jerry,

    I wanted to let you know that my wife and I found one of your map tiles near our apartment building this morning! It was on the ledge of the echo salon on Sheldon. We are both amateur artists and leaving art around for people to find is something we've done and enjoy too!

    Your map project is mind blowing! I have to admit that we haven't been down to the Federal building to see any of the art, but I plan to get down there today or tomorrow to see it now! I hope to see you there! Thanks!


  2. Mike!

    I hope that you got down there and that you beat those crowds yesterday!

    I have been leaving the "tiles" around for a few years but almost never hear from the people who find them. So, I really appreciate your note.

    Here's to the 2010 ArtPrize! Will you and your wife be in it?
