Hi. I used to use this blog a lot more than i do now. I don't agree with much of what i've posted here, but such is the nature of time. :) My instagram & facebook are likely to be more up to date.

dan tague's origami activism

>> Tuesday, April 22, 2008




artist dan tague folded a bunch of money to make it say things... from the copy at the excellent groundswell collective blog:

In the dollar, he’s managed to find such politically charged phrases as “We Trust Liars, He is a liar. State of Fear. The American Idol. I Hate War. Hunt For Oil. The Heat is On. In God We Trust, Serve The State.”

many more images here.

UPDATE: the gallery requested that i add this link: www.jonathanferraragallery.com

Hey read your blog awhile back and thought you might like to she what Dan Tague is up to now. Check it out!

In the true spirit of creativity, entrepreneurship and community activism, it is our distinct honor to announce the launch of two new websites that helps spread the message of hope and at the same time helps artists with housing.

www.hopeinthewhitehouse.com

and

www.cashruleseverything.com

Artist Dan Tague and gallerist Jonathan Ferrara have joined forces to launch these websites of shirts of art featuring Tague's folded $$$ bill imagery of unique messages of inspiration and self-examination.

Tague's work has been exhibited in numerous galleries and art centers across the US and is in several prominent museum and private collections nationwide. His original works on paper sell for thousands. In an effort to make his work more accessible to all those who love his art, we are releasing these shirts of art.


One dollar, $1.00, from every shirt sold will go directly to the New Orleans Chapter of Habitat for Humanity, a certified 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, that brings families and communities in need together with volunteers and resources to build decent, affordable houses.


*** A portion of the donated proceeds will go to providing affordable housing for artists in New Orleans***.



SPREAD THE WORD TO OTHERS WHO SHOULD SEE IT AND HELP ARTISTS REBUILD NEW ORLEANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

got money? feed kids!
