Over 180 people participated in the Neighborhood Gift Exchange, which took place during the weekend of the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival in July 2011. Gift-exchangers used on-hand art supplies and found objects to create a one of a kind gift that they exchanged for another one made by a stranger. We documented each anonymous exchange, then printed and displayed the photos on the spot so that participants could return to find out who took their gift.
