    A group of artists in Rancho Cordova is trying to put the city on the map in the art world and spread kindness to strangers by creating hundreds and perhaps thousands of unique pieces of artwork and then abandoning them for someone else to find.

    Florence Skiadas of Rancho Cordova displays a couple of her floral water color paintings on Thursday. She planned to give the pieces away at the cancer center at Kaiser Permanente.

    Victoria Smith of Rancho Cordova does a “drop” at the children’s museum. Smith, a local art teacher, spearheaded the abandoned art project to try and put Rancho Cordova on the map in the art world.

    Emma Colwell, 2, and her 5-year-old brother, Will, play with ceramic hearts made by their grandmother, Robyn Slakey, for the Abandoned Art project. The siblings later got to hide some of the hearts around their neighborhood.
