The Zero-Dollar Bill, in Limited Circulation

When most people get angry about the economy they express themselves with choice words, and artist Laura Belkin responded on a whole other creative level. The Manhattan artist is protesting by using her art as a statement about the US financial crisis.

Tomorrow, Laura will be on Wall Street distributing the 10,000 zero dollar bills she made. The bills are slightly smaller than the one-dollar bill and each one is original, signed and numbered by the artist. Laura created the zero-dollar print because she views the dollar bill "as symbolic of America’s stature in the world," and stripping it of its value is a criticism of the current American economy. What do you think of the print she created?
