Why We Love This

Art Cash by Andy Warhol. 1971. In December 1971, Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) held the "Art Cash Benefit for Television Programming" fundraising event. Robert Whitman, Robert Rauschenberg (who, along with Billy Kluver, were co-founders at E.A.T.) and four other artists all designed currency for the event. Art Cash was then purchased by attendees and could be used to gamble at the casino style tables set up for the event, to purchase drinks, buy donated artwork, etc. There were bills in six different denominations: Warhol made the ones, Whitman a three-dollar bill, Rauschenberg $12, Tom Gorley $24, Red Grooms $51, and Marisol $88. Art Cash was printed by the American Banknote Company on the same paper used for US currency (through these notes lack the tiny red and blue microfibers present in real bills as an anti-counterfeiting measure). The bills were never made available in quantity except on the night of the benefit and most of these were reclaimed the same night as they were used. These unused Warhol bills are in mint condition and come from the Kluver archive.
