I've stood by a piece of art valued at over 140,000,000.00. Yes a
hundred and forty MILLION American Dollars! And me without my
graffiti spray can...NO NO Just a joke! It was an awesome
experience. However there's an entirely different kind of art
that you can't even see with a hand held magnifying glass.
It's art placed on Micro Chips, the fancy electronic devices that power
our computers, and phones and all sorts of electrical devices. Left
there for years they sort of got discovered in 1999 and now folks are
looking for them everywhere. Here's an art Gallery that shows some
of the best! Show

Some folks mark the years by their birthdays, some by the holidays, but we
