First Peak

The first sneak peak we got for the show was Sergio Verdeza's work!
The skull is emphasized by dipping the rest of the dollar into ink, which in turn darken's the surrounding edges and pops the skull. Well Done!


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. -------- 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.
