Call for Artists! FUNDRED DOLLAR BILL PROJECT
by bay6 on June 24th, 2009

Bay6 has signed up to be the collection center for the FUNDRED DOLLAR BILL PROJECT in Austin (www.fundred.org). The FDBP is an ambitious conceptual art project created by renowned artist Mel Chin and involves the creation and collection of 3 Million individual art works across the country and transporting them via a specially retrofitted armored car to Washington DC where an attempt will be made to exchange the 3 Million FUNDRED DOLLARS for 3 Hundred Million Dollars to support operation PAYDIRT's lead remediation efforts in New Orleans.

We are having an opening July 11th (Alec Drummond - really amazing work - yall are invited as always) and we need FUNDREDS for display.

Would anybody at Mueller be interested in working with us to create and coordinate a Mueller FUNDREDraiser (or blend it in to one of the happy hours/get togethers)?

Why does this post make me feel old? Or maybe it's just an ambitious marketing effort created by renowned Bay6 and involves the creation and collection of confused residents across the Mueller Development and transporting them via specially crafted forum postings to the United States of Confusion...

Well, I could go on, but Strunk and White are rolling over in their graves.

HA! If feeling has been created as the result of our actions. as artists we feel successful.

Well said! The collection of confused residents of the United States would be an even more ambitious project (one that would require a specially retrofitted clown car instead of an armored car) so I think going with transportation of 3 Million tiny acts of creation is a much more attainable preposterous concept.

Make no mistake though: This is not our creation, this is Mel's creation we are merely trying to give it a push and add to the momentum and make some money (FUNDREDS and FUNDREDS of it!) in the process.

It's much more fun to rock with Duchamp and Rauschenberg, than roll with Strunk and White. Maybe you are hanging out with the wrong element.
