Maki Carvalho’s Farm Bailout (or Baleout)

Street Artist Maki Carvalho recently was inspired while driving through the rural Northeast and decided to do a takeover of hay bales. Using a large format printout of a dollar bill and some clever articulation of the “roll”, he created a giant wad of cash in the hay field.

He explains the thinking behind this sort of unconventional installation this way, “I’ve always found it funny how our government can constantly throw money at big business and “bail out” companies because of their irresponsibility. Driving though the back roads of Westport, Massachusetts I came across these hay bails and the connection immediately came to mind. Where’s the “bail out” for our hardworking,responsible, yet struggling farmers?”
