An exploration of art and commerce through gift and barter economies.
Archived on August 21 2011.
As part of DownStreet Art, Ephraim & Sadie Hatfield will manufacture large quantities of small electronic art works that they will give away free of charge through their pop-up “store” at 24 Eagle Street in North Adams, MA. Each work of art will feature an object that has been gifted by the public to the Hatfields.
Give One, Get One Free:
The Hatfields seek interesting items, curiosities, toys, trinkets, memorabilia, and other objects that can serve as a focal point for these works.
Before the opening and throughout the exhibit’s run, people are encouraged to bring in their small objects so that they may be incorporated into a future work of art. Gifted objects should be no more than a few inches in size, and light-weight items are preferred.
Objects can be delivered to MCLA Gallery 51 at 51 Main Street in North Adams daily from 10 am – 6 pm. Those who donate objects before the exhibit’s opening on Thursday June 23rd will receive a coupon which guarantees the holder a work of art at some point during the exhibit’s run.
DownStreet Art is a public art project designed to revitalize downtown North Adams.
