Sculptor John Salvest used 105 cargo containers to send a message. The temporary installation rests directly across from the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. The red, white and blue containers spell “IOU” on one side and “USA” on the other. The piece is supposed to provoke commentary about our monetary policy and current debt crisis and spark discussion about both our economy and the role the Federal Reserve plays in it. As you can imagine the Fed was none too pleased with the project and initially fought its installation. See it for yourself…now through October 16th.
What sort of message do you think the artist is trying to send?
