Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) is a conceptual art project initiated by the Swiss artist M. Vänçi Stirnemann in 1997. He called it a Collaborative Cultural Performance. Artist Trading Cards are 2 1⁄2 by 3 1⁄2 inches in size, the same format as modern trading cards (hockey cards or baseball cards). They are self-made unique works or small series, signed and dated on the reverse by the artist/producer, exchanged, and collected by the people who participated in the collaborative performance.
To connect community members — students, professionals, and beyond — with other individuals who enjoy the creative process. To allow community members to share their individual art forms of creative expression.To expose the community to a fun and positive art experience created by local artists in their community.
