Homenaje a ArteBA

At the height of Argentina's fin-de-millennium financial meltdown, several complementary currencies emerged, mostly issued by Argentina's provincial governments to pay employee salaries and other state debts. The Patacon was one of the most well known of these provincial I.O.U.'s , issued by the Province of Buenos Aires in 2001. This particular custom pigment was requested by an Uruguayan artist in 2009, then sourced, processed and packaged by Liquid Assets Paint & Pigment Company. Will any Los Angeles artists request similar paint when California turns to its own alternative currenciesto pay its own state employees? 

(gracias, Luciana)
