A Collection of Ideas-Mel Chin-So I guess it has to be this way

Mel Chin: So I guess it has to be this way…
Refraction, response to crisis, reframing a few dreams, and more on the delivery of a 300 million dollar difference

In 2006, artist Mel Chin initiated Operation Paydirt to neutralize harmful levels of lead found in the soil of major U.S. cities. The estimated cost of treating New Orleans soil is $300,000,000. Chin will discuss The Fundred Dollar Bill Project, which supports Operation Paydirt through contemporary art, engagement, and action.
Join SMMoA’s Cause for Creativity workshop to make your own Fundred Dollar Bill on Saturday, July 12.
