Day 69. Money Bird

9 Mar


Today is Friday and that means payday for some folks. And today’s Bird-A-Day art is inspired by cold, hard cash. Which is exactly what this Money Bird is made from. Yes, you are looking at real U.S. currency, shredded into little pieces. All for the sake of art. I’m so committed. Now before you jump to any conclusions, you should know that I came across this pile of shredded cash through honest means. I took a guided tour of the U.S. Bureau of Engraving in Fort Worth, Texas. Afterwards, in their presidential gift shop, I decided to give them my money for their old shredded money. Which now that I think about it – sounds really silly. But I got a good deal. I paid $20 dollars for $20,000 shredded dollars. I can’t explain it, but I just had to have a bag of shredded money? It just looked so cool. And it made a pretty cool bird. A cold, hard cash bird. Enjoy.
