New York: Experiments in Art and Technology, 1971. First Edition. Complete set of six artist-designed bills, approximately 6'' by 2.75''. Bills in irregular denominations of $1, $3, $12, $24, $51, and $88, designed by Warhol, Whitman, Rauschenberg, Gormley, Grooms, and Marisol respectively. In original, intact paper bank label printed with "$100 MANUFACTURERS HANOVER TRUST." Near fine, with virtually no signs of handling: pristine, crisp, sharp-cornered. (Item ID: 22170)

Bills created for the "Art Cash Benefit for Television Programming," held by Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.). in December 1971 at Automation House in New York. E.A.T was officially founded in 1967 by Rauschenberg and Whitman, together with engineers Billy Kluver and Fred Waldhauser, as a nonprofit organization dedicated to experimental collaboration between artists and engineers. The four had previously collaborated in 1966 on a series of performance evenings, with John Cage, Lucinda Childs, and other notables, and the group's activities were at their peak by the beginning of the 1970s. "Art Cash" was designed as currency to be purchased and used for gambling at the fundraiser for the group. "Art Cash" was printed exclusively for this event (by the American Banknote Company, the same company that printed currency for many governments) and was available for a brief time in sets of one bill each, and never sold in large quantities or reprinted. Rarely seen as a complete set, especially with the band.
