Cultural Currency: Contemporary Art from the Riemer Collection
ON VIEW MARCH 4 THRU JUNE 4 | WOODSON ART MUSEUM, WAUSAU
This new exhibition at the Woodson explores the innovative ways artists use money as a medium to expand its worth beyond a given denomination. Each of the artists featured investigates preconceived definitions of monetary value, meticulously repurposing bills and coins into exquisite, precise artworks. Universally relevant, humorous and, at times, critical, Cultural Currency asks viewers to consider how the definition of currency can be reshaped into a multifaceted object steeped in meaning and intrigue. The collection is the passion of Louise Rothman-Riemer and Davis Riemer, investment advisers from Oakland, California, who began collecting money-themed art in 1995 to encourage new attitudes toward money’s intrinsic value. Museum open Tues.-Fri. 9 am-4 pm; Sat.-Sun. Noon-5 pm. Free admission. Details at lywam.org.
