J.S.G. BOGGS EXHIBIT OPENING IN SEPTEMBER

Money artist J.S.G. Boggs has a new exhibit opening September 9th at
the Mary Brogan Museum of Art & Science in Tallahassee, FL.  "CURRENCY:
Art As Money/Money As Art" runs through November 26, 2006.  From the
museum's web site:

"Money has always been fascinating as both subject and object of art.
This exhibition presents an overview of the world of currency and value
through the eyes of many contemporary artists. JSG Boggs, the most well-
known of today's ‘money artists' will be a visiting artist during this
exhibition."

For more information on the exhibit, see: More Info

The Tallahassee Democrat listed the exhibit in its August 25 "Things to
Do" column:  "ACT LIKE YOU'RE MADE OF MONEY: In the cult comedy "Swingers,"
Vince Vaughn's hyper character would boost a buddy's self-image by telling
him: "You are so money." You can use the same catchphrase for The Mary
Brogan Museum of Art & Science when its "Art & Money/Money & Art" group
exhibit opens. One of the big draws is artist J.S.G. Boggs, who
painstakingly paints pictures of U.S. dollars, Swiss francs, English
pounds and other currency. They look exactly like the real deals. So,
is it a post-modern statement on capitalism or is it counterfeiting?
Let the debate begin."

of Boggs' works.  - I exhibited my own collection at the 2004 ANA
convention in Pittsburgh. -Editor]
