Artist trading cards (ATCs) are a collaborative arts effort conceptualized by Swiss artist M. Vänçi Stirnemann.

During an ATCs project, artists create small pieces to mutually trade with others.

These small works are generally 2.5 by 3.5 inches, the standard size for a modern trading card. ATCs have limitless potential and can range from small paintings, drawings, collages, or mixed media projects.

About the branch

Highland Square is one of Akron’s most iconic communities, hosting numerous street fairs and festivals, eclectic shopping and dining, and a vibrant night life. The extremely diverse neighborhood is home to seniors, young families, artists, educators, and students of all demographics. The Highland Square Branch Library is a reflection of this diverse neighborhood, with a standout LGBTQ collection and a rich programming schedule.

Reference assistance, computers and computer classes, WiFi, copiers, scanning, and faxing round out the services provided within the library. The full scope of community participation, however, is seen in local senior care facilities, local schools and preschools, and neighborhood festivals where Highland Square Branch Library staff plays an active role in creating experiences for participants of all ages. Visit us soon on the Square.
