Stamp Mobile Dedication

Join Ben & Jerry for the Stamp Mobile dedication at AVAM!

  • When: Tuesday, April 19, 2016
  • What Time: 1pm – 2pm
  • Cost: Free!

Join Ben & Jerry, the world famous ice cream duo and co-founders of StampStampede.org, along with AVAM's founder and director Rebecca Alban Hoffberger in welcoming the arrival of The Stamp Mobile to AVAM!

The Amazing Amend-O-Matic Stamp Mobile is the flagship mobile stamping vehicle of StampStampede.org – a grassroots project created by Ben Cohen that encourages citizens to rubber stamp their paper money with messages like: "Not To Be Used for Bribing Politicians" and "Stamp Money Out of Politics," with the bi-partisan goal of ending undue financial influence in politics, and overturning the Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling. The large mobile interactive artwork is mounted on the flatbed of a 21' cutaway van and visitors can clamps their dollar bill onto a platen and then watch as it begins its comic journey through the machine's "Rube Goldberg-esque" stamping device.

Visitors will get to see the artwork in action and stamp their own dollars, and even enjoy a bite of delicious Ben & Jerry's ice cream too (while supplies last).
