    IOWA CITY (AP) — A University of Iowa student wanted his art display on greed to prove a point. Point taken.
    A piece titled "The American Flag" made of 130 dollar bills, meticulously hand-sewn together and colored to resemble the flag was stolen.

    "My whole show is about greed and how it can take over anyone, and just having this piece stolen further proves the point," Curtis William Readel said.

    The piece was put on display Saturday in the University of Iowa Art Building. It was stolen between 9 p.m. and midnight Wednesday, said Duane Papke, associate director of University of Iowa police.

    Readel hung a statement in place of the missing artwork.
