Acquired Art Crusade

20051213-10 Plane 72

An anonymous artist has stamped and hand screened 450 pieces of US currency. The project is meant to explore finding, giving and receiving art in an unexpected way. Currency is the ironic medium that gives underlying purpose to the exchange of each piece which is meant to take the class system out of ownership. Presumably, the circulation of this work will never be higher than it is today as people lucky enough to find one may be inclined to keep it.
