Dedicated to ART by the PEOPLE of the United States of America
The Fundred Dollar Bill Project and the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design are pleased to announce the launch of the Fundred Reserve on Thursday, Feb. 23.
Situated within the Corcoran's Rotunda, Atrium and Gallery 1 will be the Fundred Dollar Bill Project’s 453,168 (and counting) hand-drawn representations of $100 bills from across the country. All visitors will be invited to learn about the project and create their own unique Fundreds, a currency of imagination, which will be prominently added to the presentation.
The Fundred Reserve will mark the launch of participatory national engagement throughout D.C. In collaboration with District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) Arts, students from more than 46 schools are creating original Fundreds. The Fundred Armored Truck that has traveled 20,000 miles picking up the Fundreds from around the country will be redeployed for this launch, visiting the schools and accumulating the new D.C. Fundreds. This interactive presentation seeks to engage teachers, parents, students, politicians, community members, and health and housing agencies—anyone who can donate their individual expression in this collective effort against lead poisoning of children. Draw a Fundred and your voice will join millions of others nationwide to address this ongoing crisis. Regular visiting hours are Wednesday - Sunday, 1-6 p.m. or by appointment from Feb. 23 - March 12.
