99¢ Greetings from Jamaica commemorates the changing neighborhood of Jamaica and reflects our culture of consumerism. The postcards, which can be purchased for 99¢, include images of street vendors, small local businesses and new mega-stores. They are packaged in a stretched out dollar bill that folds out into a list of all the items for sale at the store for 99¢. Combining art and commerce, 99¢ Greetings from Jamaica presents art about the community as an accessible commodity.
