FIDEM Medallic Sculpture Exhibit to Close 9-15
By ANA

Exhibit will be replaced by “Money of the Civil War” in October

“The Medal Is the Message: Global Ideas in Handheld Sculpture,” an innovative exhibit at
the Edward C. Rochette Money Museum, is closing on Sept. 15, and will be replaced by “A
House Divided: Money of the Civil War,” opening on Oct. 9.

“Global Ideas in Handheld Sculpture,” which opened in Sept. 2007, features more than
1,400 works of art created by artists from 32 countries. The exhibit was made for the
International Art Medal Federation (FIDEM) Art Medal World Congress, which was hosted by
the American Numismatic Association in Colorado Springs. It was the first time in 20 years
the prestigious event took place in the United States.

The theme of the Congress, Passages to Reconstruction, conveyed a message of hope
following Hurricane Katrina and the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. Many artists incorporated
themes of tragedy and renewal in their work.

The Money Museum will celebrate the opening of “A House Divided: Money of the Civil
War,” with a gala public reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Oct. 9. For more information, call 719-
482-9814 or e-mail museum@money.org.
