War of 1812 Treasure Hunt.

Two local artists have come up with a neat way to celebrate the War of 1812 and, at the same time win $10,000.
Dennis White and Stephen Gibb's idea is called, "In Pursuit of the Golden Key.
That Golden Key will lead one lucky hunter to a ten thousand dollar prize.
There is a book authored by the artists as well as paintings hung in the Gibson Gallery in Amherstburg that provide the clues to the treasure.
The exhibition of their paintings opens tomorrow and the treasure hunt will go on until someone finds it...a similar hunt held in Britain years ago took about three years to solve.
Earlier today, I dropped by the Gibson Gallery to talk with artist Dennis White and began by asking him how he came up with the idea of a treasre hunt based on the War of 1812.
