“My God, My God…The 3 Stock Traders”

Mr Wall St 2

“My God, My God…The 3 Stock Traders”

New York City, May 25th, 2010 – Artist Michelle Rogers responds to the financial crisis through an urban poster project placed on Broad Street beside the New York Stock Exchange entitled “My God, My God…The 3 Stock Traders”

The artist will present large poster reproductions of her oil paintings of stock traders “in panic mode,” as the global financial meltdown takes grip. Protesting the financial scandal that has engulfed the world economies for the last two years, Rogers, addresses the crisis on Wall Street, at the actual “scene of the crime”.

Inspired by Venetian master Titian’s portraits of figures looking up to the heavens in terror, Rogers’ stock traders are in similar poses and are fixed looking up at screens while the numbers plummet.

“I want the Wall Street guys to know, that they are not the masters of the universe and to accept that they have caused great pain in the world and they need to make it right”. – Said Rogers

On a positive note – The 2008 financial crisis allowed Adafruit to move to a bigger space in the Financial District, the landlords seemed to have imply our electronics business was a better bet than the stock broker(s) & banksters that lived here before and quickly left.

  1. Now I understand how you can afford to operate your business in the high rent area of NYC. Thank you Wall Street!….but what if the market has another renaissance?
