What Does 100K Mean? Photos!

On December 20, 2011 members of OWS Arts & Labor returned to the High Line for a Photo General Assembly at the site of the commissioned billboard by John Baldessari The First $100,000 I Ever Made. We engaged High Line visitors regarding the history and meaning of the piece and what $100,000 means in our current economic crisis. Using “Baldessari dots,” we invited the public to add another level of meaning to this somewhat ambiguous artwork. Participants either selected a pre-made dot, or wrote their own messages before posing for a photo.
