Trade4Art is a Baltimore-based barter network that connects artists with journeymen and allows them to directly exchange their skills, goods, or services without the intermediary of cash.
Trade for Art began as a grand dream and was made a reality by winning Crusade for Art's 2016 Engagement Grant, which provided seed money to start the program.
“Trade for Art is an accessible, equitable, and sustainable way for members of a community to use their skills to meet their own needs.”
— Bruce McKaig, FOUNDER
How It Works
Trade for Art is a bartering network. To barter is to trade goods or services without using money. Make art? Or want art? Need a service? Or offer a service? You're in the right place.
