This week in Chicago, if you know what's good for you, you'll get to experience a solid performance collective and venue known as The Inconvinece. This week they launch The Strapped Festival, several days of art and theater performance plays that will "examine the current economic recession-some plays are funny, others freakish; some quick witted and some musical"
It's a fun place to be, for real. Plus my buddy Meredith Kachel is pulling in the arts, she's quite rowdy, so it's gonna be good.

And oh yea you can expect to see a few MoneyBags laying around the place. PickEmUp, PickEmUp, PickEmUp!

Lisa and I got the chance to make MoneyBags with a 5 star group of High School students who are apart of the New Art In The Neighborhood program at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis. This was a rare chance for us to sit and present the project, plan, create the bags and currency, AND make the drop in a matter of a few hours. EXHILARATING.
Here are a few of the drops we made.
