The Fundred Comes to PDX

Super-talented artist and political activist Mel Chin is bringing his Fundred Dollar Bill Project to Portland this Friday, May 12 at 12:30pm.

The Fundred Dollar Bill is a national project that is engaging 3 million kids across the country. Kids draw original interpretations of the US $100 bill, and a veggie-oil powered armored truck arrives to pick them up. The truck will drive across the country and end in Washington DC, where Mel will request that Congress exchange the Fundreds for real funding to detoxify lead polluted soil in New Orleans.

How cool is that?
