Change for a ten

i'm piggy backing the BEST entry today with some other examples from their blog. Being a thankful teacher of a fairly sizble budget for an art department I feel I need to do my best to share! Sounds like a better project to work on instead of curriculum writing!

ART 180, a nonprofit organization that gives young people in challenging circumstances a voice through the arts, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. In honor of the occasion, they have created a super-cool, large-scale collaborative project called Change for a Ten.

Visit their website to download the template, then paint, write, sew, or draw your own $10 bill about the change you’d like to see in the community. Use any material you like - just keep it the size of a dollar bill. Submit along with a real $10 donation to ART 180 (0 East 4th Street #56, Richmond, 23224)

All of the "dollars" will be exhibited at a special anniversary celebration at VCU's Brandcenter on October 10, 2008. You can see what they've gotten already or read about it on their blog.
