Poster for 'Pennies Without Borders', the first show in the McCleave Cross-Canada Tour by artist Jeanne Ju. Every opening reception on the tour occurred in a location chosen by the host artist.

For Pennies Without Borders Jeanne Ju filled a suitcase with Canadian and American pennies, whose numbers will be proportioned daily according to the current exchange rate. Through the creation of this visual metaphor, Pennies Without Borders aims to examine monetary exchange and its political implications for USA-Canada relations.
