Thank you, we met our $770 goal! Help us get to $1540.
With an additional $770 we will be able to expand our project and take it on the road.
Elizabeth Emery and Corrie Slawson will explore wage disparity between men and women through Making Money the Harder Way: get used to it, make it stretch. The piece incorporates performance, installation and printmaking.
On June 21, 2013, in matching green dresses and gold shoes, we will push an early 20th century tabletop press sitting on a handmade gold cart through Cleveland's Uptown neighborhood (from The Sculpture Center to the plaza in front of MOCA Cleveland). Along the way we will stop to print 77-cent dollars. Passers-by receive freshly printed bills portraying Lilly Ledbetter and the exhibition's symbolic imagery of tires and molded Jell-o, all in the colors green and gold. By physically printing our own money and giving it away, we work hard to fulfill our roles as informants to the public of the issue of gender wage disparity.
Risks and challenges
Making Money the Harder Way: get used to it, make it stretch is mobile, flexible and has some aspects that are unpredictable. We see this as beneficial to keeping the project interesting. We may stub a toe or Ledbetter dollars might blow in the wind but we will make it work. We are deeply committed to this project and will do whatever is needed to execute it well.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
