Gord Downie Portrait
8x5 Pennies on Wood

Our Common Currency
The 8 foot by 5 foot piece is constructed from plywood, over 11,300 Canadian pennies and wood from a century farm in Alberta. The pennies were collected over years of travelling throughout the Maritimes, purchased from a donation box, and donated from friends, coworkers and family.

Started in the Spring of 2017, the piece was finished in August of 2020 taking over 300 hours to create.
