Avant Garde's Revaluation of the Dollar

Props to Hypebeast's Phillip T. Annand for digging this up. Annand found this piece in an issue of Avant Garde, an art and design magazine that was published between 1968 and 1971. In this issue of the publication, various artists were asked to reimagine the one dollar bill with which we are all so familiar. Focusing on social criticism and satire, as well as an attention to color and design, each of the reinterpretations are dope in their own way. Like a lot of great art, this project required the artists behind it to take an everyday, commonplace subject and turn it into something visually exciting or provocative.

  1. Do you know if this art and design magazine is worth anything? I have one that is in excellent condition and was wondering what it is worth. Thanks
