The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center is looking for a few more hand-made “Fundreds” before the money-sized art works are collected during a free celebration on March 18.
Organizers, including artist Mel Chin, plan to collect 3 million interpretations of $100 bills designed by kids and adults. “Fundreds” from more than 100 U.S. sites will be delivered in a vegetable oil-powered armored truck to Congress to show how much funding is needed to clean up lead contamination around New Orleans. You can learn more about the project at www.fundred.com.
