Lawrence Weschler Money Quote talking about the controversial money art of J.S.G. Boggs (who died today at 62 in Florida) and our understanding of the value of art and the art of money which Boggs explored. Lawrence Weschler said:

What, precisely, is it that we value in art, or, for that matter, in money? How do we value one in terms of the other? Indeed, how do we place a value on anything at all? And, more specifically, how is it that we continue to redit the legitimacy of anything as confoundingly insubstantial as paper money?
