In New York City We Trust : School of Visual Arts : Local Currency Project

Inspired by national local currency schemes such as Ithaca Hours and BerkShares, MFA students at New York’s School of Visual Arts recently designed a series of local currency bills for various NYC neighborhoods … “students pulled a neighborhood out of a hat and were asked to research their neighborhood to determine what characteristics should be represented on its currency … the color, shape and texture of the resulting designs reflect the diversity of the various neighborhoods.’ You can check out the ‘Mulas’ and the ‘Favors’ and the ‘Biscos,’ amongst many other wonderful currency ideas, here.
