6866 - My Two Cents Worth    ($43)

Tuttle OK   USA

Width: 8.5"   Length: 10"

Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabrics with inked words and two US pennies.

Artist Statement: The saying, attributed to Benjamin Franklin, ďA penny saved is a penny earned", does not necessarily mean one should become a thrifty miser. A more likely interpretation might be that not spending foolishly will save money, making it available for something important and needed when enough has been put aside. As Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative is proving that it aids scientists in making important contributions toward controlling the dreaded Alzheimer's disease, perhaps a contribution to AAQI would be an appropriate use of this "earned" money. Every penny counts.
