Fundred

Artist Mel Chin's Fundred Dollar Bill Project is coming to Portland! Come participate in the project at St. Mary's Academy this Friday, February 12 at 12:30pm.

The Fundred Dollar Bill Project is a national artistic project connecting and collecting the voices of 3 million youths across the country. Come draw a Fundred — an original, hand-drawn interpretation of US $100 bills. A veggie-oil powered armoured truck will arrive at 1:00pm to pick up the Fundreds. The truck’s cross-country drive will end in Washington DC where artist Mel Chin will request Congress to exchange the Fundreds for real funding to detoxify lead polluted soil in New Orleans.
