'A Pennybank' by Donny Miller Picks on Commercialism

Art is a powerful and pervasive form of social commentary, and 'A Pennybank' by Donny Miller is no exception. This piece is a book called "How You Can Get a Better Job" by Lasher Richards encapsulated in a glass box with a glass piggy bank on top.

When you read the page to which the book has been opened, it starts off like a children's tale--albeit a sarcastic one. By the time you get to the bottom of the page, however, it's clear that Wall Street fat cats and credit card companies are the butt of this social commentary art piece.
