In his latest work, Daniel Allen Cohen plays with both our need and desire for money, while gently addressing how the Federal Reserve keeps printing billions and trillions of dollars. Inspiration for the piece dates back to the 1800s, when “bread” became synonymous for “money”. Less than 100 years later in 1913 Congress created the Federal Reserve System to provide a more stable financial system. Nowadays, the Fed is known for one main thing: printing money… and lots of it!
Benjamin’s Bread doesn’t just bail out corporations, it’s available for everyone, especially if you wanted more than a stimulus check. These limited-edition sculptures are available for purchase below and have been deflated or discounted from $100,000 to $169 for a limited time.
