MATTHEW WEINBERG: PAINTED CASH

OPENING RECEPTION:

AUGUST 10

7PM - 11PM

Matthew Weinberg, Painted Cash, Coagula Curatorial

Drawing on money is an act of social protest. My name is Matthew Weinberg and I have been drawing all my life. Growing up, I drew on almost all things before they got thrown away. It was disposable art.

The journey to drawing on currency seemed only logical. I am now going to give my art some value. I found myself doodling on $1's and $5's. Is it legal, is it vandalism, is it unpatriotic and after all that has been done to it, does it still have value? Whatever.

Paper currency represents our ability to hold value and consume. There is no more perfect prefabricated canvas to print on.
