  • Dreams for Free on 14th Street, Art in Odd Places, Part 2

    Dreams for Free on 14th Street, Art in Odd Places, Part 2

    I was asked to return to 14th Street and be part of the afternoon activities for Art in Odd Places: Number. Today I set up a table to encourage people to take a moment and think about what they would do if they had a sudden windfall of money. The next lottery jackpot is for 55 million dollars, which would change so many people's lives. It is striking to me how many people dream of having their basic needs met, like transportation and shelter, along with paying off debts.

    Invite for Art in Odd Places: Number

    I am headed to NY in October for the annual Art in Odd Places event. I plan to do my project Dreams for Free on 14th Street on October 18 starting at 3 pm. Come out and share your dreams with me--I will give you a free lottery ticket for whatever the jackpot is that day. 

  • "I ____ a dollar" in downtown Greensboro

    "I ____ a dollar" in downtown Greensboro

    On Wednesday, June 5, 2013 I installed I ____ a dollar on Washington Street in downtwon Greensboro. My assistant Janie and I hung up the dollars in the doorway of what we thought was a vacant building (pics later revealed that someone was inside the building.) We left the dollars early in the morning before the street came to life with street traffic. We installed a camera in my car parked across from the dollars to record what happens when people are faced with the question of whether they "want" or "need" a dollar.
