ARTSWAP Attendee, Open Field 2011.

Off of the ice—from the aptly named Ice Art Swap—and into the hot sun, Art Swap is about to hit Open Field. The concept of Art Swap is simple: bring  art and swap it for a different piece of art! The one unchanging aspect of the project: the art swapper must pose for a photo with the object they brought and the object they received in exchange (see image).

Local artist and community organizer Angela Sprunger is the woman behind the Open Field Art Swap activity and adamantly believes that you should bring whatever you consider to be “art.”  Sprunger, an Open Field veteran who answered some questions for us last summer when the Art Swap team first joined us, also has a drawing in the newly-minted mnartists.org coloring book  which is now available in the Walker Shop.

Art Swap roves around the Twin Cities, and will also grace Open Field on three Saturdays: June 23th, July 28th, and August 25th, 2012 from 2 to 5 pm. Bring art to swap!
