DESCRIPTION

With "Show Me the Money," artists bring to life some of the things that make the world go around: dollars, banknotes, bankrolls, bills, bread, bucks, capital, cash, checks, chips, coins, coinage, dough, finances, funds, gold, gravy, greenbacks, hard cash, legal tender, loot, pesos, riches, roll, salary, silver, treasures, wad, wages, and wealth.

No matter what you call it, money is an interesting subject to illustrate through art. Through interactives children will learn the art of spending, bartering, saving, investing in a fun manner. Visitors will be able to create their own money, discover is something is fake or real and travel around the world to take a look at currency in different countries.
