So if you want to be in an art show here is the deal, I figure if you are reading my blog you are a great artist you can be in my $2 BILL ART SHOW – You send me a self-addressed stamped envelope. I send you a crisp real, legal tender $2 Bill. You make art on it. You send it back to me. The show opens July 12 (with a real art opening thingy in Downtown L.A.) but the Bill has to be back to me on July 1 so I can photograph your $2 Bill for the show’s catalog.
All artworks will be priced at $200 (50/50 split between gallery and artist) and when I send you the bill there will be display criteria so don’t pester me with “can I do this or that or the other” the answer is probably NO as I want to show the bills as close to the format as they are printed.
Are you worried about legal implications for defacing a $2 Bill? Then go away, I don’t want you in my show. If you are not afraid of exercising your free speech and talent on Thomas Jefferson’s face, send a self addressed, stamped (42-cents, by the way) envelope to:
Coagula $2 Show
2100 N. Main St #A8
Los Angeles CA 90031
The bills are in serial number order, so I am keeping track of which bill I send you – and yes, you will owe me $2 if you do not send it back. First mailed, first included. When I run out of dough, no more entries, so send me the envelope now.
And yeah, you can forward this link to find out if your artist friends are lazy or on the ball as far as their careers go.
