Zero Dollar — by Laura Gilbert


Limited edition (10,000), each signed and numbered by the artist — free.


She had trouble giving them away on Wall Street yesterday (above and below).


David Segal's front page Style section story in today's Washington Post will give you the details, should you be interested.


If not, well, move on.

Note that beginning on October 24, 2008 you can get one of the artist's Zero Dollar prints — still free, the way we like it — at El Taller Latino Americano (Grady Alexis Gallery, 2710 Broadway @104th St., New York, NY 10025) until they're all gone.

You could look it up.

Laura is a true American!! Thanks for making people aware of the pending devaluation of the dollar thanks to the passing of the bail out. Inflation hits the country that creates it last so just sit back and watch!!!!

It's social commentary. Get a clue! My only problem is that I think the portrait on the bill is of the wrong George. Shouldn't Bush get the credit he deserves... zero!
