Since the imagery depicted on banknotes symbolizes the ideas and ideals of a country's culture and the society that its people live in, the relationship between art and commerce cannot be avoided when artists use actual money or reference currency in their work.
This exhibit, with its economic and political undertones and overlays, is an exploration of our relationship with money and our response to it. The artists include Matthew Litteken, Meridith McNeal, Mark Wagner, Marshall Weber, C.K.Wilde, and Grace Williams.
