Money Man: a monument to the American Way

Tax day is upon us, and we thought it was a great time to revisit artist Doug Michels’ (1943-2003) project “Money Man Monument” (1991). Michels proposed the installation of a 23-foot-tall Money Man on the National Mall alongside memorials to American icons like George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, calling it “a permanent tribute to green power and the American way.”

It also features the contributions of two more of our close friends, Joe Angio (camera) and Tony Judge (actor).

You can also watch the raw footage.
