Will You Be The One To Solve This Creative Caper at Central Art?

Play Central Art's "Clue-Done-It?" Game & Enter To Win!

 

Was it Colonel Mustard? Mr. Green? Perhaps Professor Plum was the perpetrator! Something is most assuredly afoot at Central Art, and we need you to help us get to the bottom of it!

 

Using the clues we’ll reveal each day on our Facebook page during the week of Halloween (Monday – Saturday, 10/28 – 11/2), you get to use your brilliant deductive and observational skills to determine “Clue-Done-It”, what they used, and in which room the deed was done!

 

Be sure to pick up your “Detective Notes” in-store, check our Facebook page each day for a new clue, and work the case until you have made your ultimate conclusion.

 

Still stumped? Stop in Wednesday, Oct. 30th to talk to the suspects in person! Miss Scarlett, Col. Mustard, and the rest of the characters will be appearing in costume and ready for your interrogation.
