CSA Scholars make Art out of Money

The practicality of finances met the creativity of the arts Wednesday at the Cleveland School of the Arts when students and representatives from the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland's Learning Center and Money Museum met to share their work.

The students showed off photographs and "tribal style" masks, created in part with shredded money from the Cleveland Fed, and Federal Reserve representatives took the opportunity to not only enjoy the various pieces of art, but to talk to the students about being wise with their money.

The student work is now on display at the Cleveland Fed's Learning Center and Money Museum during normal museum hours at 1455 E. 6th Street in Cleveland.

"Money Art" is one of a number of programs being hosted on Wednesday by Fed offices nationwide as part of its Financial Education Day, according to a museum news release.

"The goal is to tie the money into art but we also talk about financial literacy and good choices," said Kelly Banks, Vice President of Community Relations and Education at the Cleveland Fed.
