“Arts Cuts Memo” contest submission is a striking data visualization

Arts Cuts Memo by Sharon Kahanoff

This entry in the Arts Cuts Memo contest – a competition to see who can make the most creative memo to the government out of yellow sticky notes – was designed by Sharon Kahanoff. She submitted this explanation: “Just so you know, my yellow sticky has been accurately rendered to reflect 1/20th of 1% of the budgetary whole that is the paper, and of course this figure is before the cuts. It took me longer to do the math than to make the drawing, and I think I’m prouder of the math than the drawing.” When the little arts funding sticky note says “after the cuts I will be too small to see,” it’s not kidding.
