Recession Proofs

Times are tough, but they are also fascinating. Moira McLaughlin decided to challenge herself and the world to make artwork and collages that reflect our economic crisis. The result: "Recession Proofs."  She is welcoming your recession proofs. (Moira's work is illustrated, here).

The rules:

1. You can only use images that you got for free: junk mail, grocery store circulars, j. crew catalogs, free weekly newspapers, etc.

1. Title must reflect current events or your response to the Great Recession.

3. You can use found objects from around your house, for example a plastic bag, but NOT an object that you bought, i.e. a magazine you paid for last year.

4. You may purchase the panel for the foundation of the collage.

The idea is to make art out of things that are free and show that creativity truly is "Recession Proof."
