On The Money

Different countries and cultures have different ideas about who it is appropriate to portray on their money. At present, the Swiss Frank is graced by portraits of figures from the arts. The previous series displayed portraits of scientists.

If the U.S. were to place American artists (native born and naturalized) on our bank notes, who do you think those artists ought to be?

For myself, I'd like to see Ursula K. Le Guin, perhaps on the fifty dollar bill, and Yitsaac Perlman, though I don't know which bill; perhaps ten, so people would see him quite a lot.

Georgia O'Keefe

A painter, a violinist, and a writer. Two women and a disabled person. I like how this is shaping up.

Thanks for the invite. Hmmm... Maybe Harper Lee? or Jackson Pollack? or Aaron Copeland? tc (trying to figure out how to get an identity)

Welcome, tc!

You need to have a Blogger account and the screen name that goes with it.

Great suggestions, tc. I particularly like Harper Lee.
