There is artwork on money. And money can buy you a lot of art. Plus money is made from trees and boxes are made from trees… not literally, of course, except in this case where the box of money is actually a block of wood. The awesome wood carving of Randall Rosenthal. [Via Twisted Sifter]
Sneaky cards, created in 2009, have been revived and redesigned and are spreading like a crazy wildfire meme.

Come on now, who wouldn’t want their very own talking Henry Rollins doll? Performance art, just by pulling a string. Just full of adolescent testosterone! [Via Dangerous Minds]
And finally, if the world’s museums are too far away, too expensive to get into, and too huge to view all in one day. look no further than Google.

No more stupid tourists, no more cranky security guards – enjoy the masterpieces of history from the comfort of your own home.
