Brooklyn Exhibit ‘Barter Town’ Brings Back Swapping
Street fair-style event exchanges goods and services
Money isn’t everything, and in fact, it’s not allowed in “Barter Town,” says artist Heather Hart‘s swap meet style exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. In the spirit of the Old West, “Barter Town” is a place for people to swap goods and services without exchanging any currency.
“Barter Town” encourages creativity. Whether you have a vintage dress you never wear or give an unforgettable massage, the interactive exhibit wants you to participate. So bring your ideas, services, creative works, or unwanted goods and get ready to barter.
