This coming weekend, I'll be part of an exciting (and some would say provocative) show called One Hundred Dollars. The brain child of Andrew Smenos and Sergio Barrale, One Hundred Dollars challenges 100 artists to create a single work of art utilizing a one dollar bill as its canvas. The show will open at LittleField this Saturday, July 14th at 6pm. Each unique piece will sell for $100.
Check out the press release below:
The title of the exhibition is "One Hundred Dollars". All the artwork for this show utilizes the U.S. ONE DOLLAR BILL as a canvas. There will be one hundred artists in the show. All the artwork is available for one hundred dollars each.
Money is simply a piece of paper, Art is simply a form of communication, yet both carry incredible power. Concepts permeate art and money. The perception of value or authority. The ancient codes used and doctrines communicated. Layered and surreal images that appear with beautifully crafted portraits, scenes, symbols, forms and typography from generations past. Precious objects we exchange and collect. One Hundred Artists, One Hundred Dollar Bills, every dollar bill Art Piece is for sale for One Hundred Dollars.
