Art Night at LCD Gallery: "Art & Currency - Artistic Reinterpretation of Cash and Coins"

Please join us for Art Night to view the most captivating and topical exhibition of the season "Art & Currency - Artistic Reinterpretation of Cash and Coins". 

ART NIGHT AT LCD GALLERY: 
THURSDAY, MARCH 15, 5:30pm - 8:30pm

Artists: Robin Clark, Jason Hughes, Justine Smith, Oriane Stender, Finn Stone, Bran Symondson, Dan Tague, Lauren V. Tickle, Mark Wagner, Stacey Lee Webber, Robert Wechsler, C.K. Wilde

"Money is a funny thing: Comprised of pieces of paper and cumbersome bits of metal, it makes pockets and wallets bulge. We count it, save it, lose it, earn it, and spend it. But do we really look at it? The attention and detail of currency from around the world is its own artistry. Many coins and notes are objects of art in and unto themselves. In an age when our transactions are increasingly electronic and cold hard cash is becoming obsolete, Art & Currency takes a closer look at the aesthetics, utility, function, and beauty of money. 

While it's obvious currency has utilitarian worth as a material object, one that is circulated to support economies and lives, on a broader scale, currency also refers to expression, prevalence, and reputation. Ideas gain currency, we are told. Thus Art & Currency can be seen as an arena of exchange regarding the many ways to see money in addition to the many ways we might define fine art. In this way, Art & Currency uncovers and examines layers of value (monetary, cultural, intellectual, political, aesthetic) to ask valuable questions about worth, substance, meaning, significance, and attraction. 

In its most basic form, Art & Currency starts a conversation - about the value of money and art, about the aesthetics of worth, about the importance of beauty and utility. Many of the works from these artists combine currencies from all over the world in just one piece - making the currencies inclusive to one another and allowing them to co-exist and be rearranged, to work together as a whole. In this way, this exhibition demonstrates that money only seems private or personal. What Art & Currency does is demonstrate the interconnections of the human via currency."

- MARIANNE BRUVEL, DIRECTOR & CURATOR - LCD GALLERY

The exhibit is on display until March 31, 2018.
