What did artist Hans-Peter Feldmann do with his $100,000 Hugo Boss Prize money?He decided to display the money at the Guggenheim Musuem. One-hundred-thousand $1 bills were pinned to the walls for the installation.
And, because you’re wondering the same thing I was wondering….
Since the money is there for the taking, officials at the Guggenheim are planning to have extra guards on duty and security cameras keeping a close watch on visitors. “In the next room you find $10 million paintings, and nobody is stealing them,” Mr. Feldmann said. “If they pocket $1, O.K. But I’m sure that won’t happen.” via NY Times
