There’s no denying that collecting art can be expensive. However, at least one event at Art-A-Whirl will let you take home a piece of work without parting with any cash. You will, however, have to leave behind a work of art of your own. Welcome to the Art Swap.
Born out of the Art Shanty project, the unique ice houses that appear on Metro area lakes every winter, the Art Swap is a great way to bring home some art for free. Drop off any piece of art you created yourself and take another piece with you. If you call it art, they call it art. Look for the Art Swap at Altered Esthetics 1224 Quincy St. NE. Like the rest of Art-A-Whirl, the Art Swap begins today and runs all weekend.
