SCULPTURE: BIG, BIG PENNY

An E-Sylum subscriber writes: "Here's an article that mentions
sculpture involving giant coins."

"Big Big Penny" is an outsized coin resting on its side, accompanied
by mini figures: rich people, drinking champagne, balance atop the
penny; poor people, propelling and being crushed by the coin, appear
at its base. "Big Big Penny" rises outside Grand Rapids' Welsh
Auditorium, a '30s structure evoking the Depression's darkest days."
