Art and the Financial Crisis


Artist Enrique Chagoya created this piece called "Pyramid Scheme" designed to mimic the famous Campbells Soup cans.  He's serving up a selection of soups and stews that are very familiar to most of us.  Judging from the demonstrations on Wall Street, many people have had enough of this soup line.

Warhol would have loved this. And the Occupy Movement, I bet!

Clever!
Waiting to be knocked over.

Does green mean decaf which is an appropriate analogy of the economy. Yes let's put some caffiene into our economic recovery.

I once had an election night party during the post-Reagan era and served the "trickle-down buffet."

The Pyramid Scheme is a pretty creative piece.

How funny, and sad at the same time.
Very good imagination to come up with this one.

I LOVE this! That's telling it like it is! I saw where some "Wall Street" folks were shouting down at the protestors and laughing while drinking champagne. How's that for "in your face" attitude?
