Come witness the tortoise! Come witness the trades! Come trade with the Trading Tortoise—a roving installation and good ol’ American Roadtrip—the brainchild of artists Monica Choy and Souther Salazar. Trading Tortoise opens its arms to any items of sentimental or creative (or any other kind of) value to you so that you may barter for a piece of artwork or item collected by Choy and Salazar from their American visits (alternatively, they accept written stories and tales).
Open Field is one of the Trading Tortoise’s very first stops after the two installation curators and designers took off from the West Coast a few weeks ago. Let us give them a hearty welcome by contributing local flare to barter, swap, and bargain!
Bring several items to trade just in case more than one barter is possible. In addition to your bartering goods, feel free to bring Fourth of July leftovers, a blanket, and a baby because Sunday, July 8th is also going to be Picnic Day on Open Field.
Trading Tortoise will roll onto the field Sunday, July 8th from 1-3 pm.
