CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A piece of artwork was getting some attention in Cedar Rapids.

The traveling sign is asking people if capitalism works for them.

People who walk past the sign are asked to vote true or false. On Sunday, it was displayed outside the NewBo City Market.

As of Sunday afternoon, "true" had about triple the number of votes. Artist Steve Lambert says typically responses are about even.

"We can make choices about our economic system, and we can make choices about really big-picture things, but in order to be able to decide those things we need to be able to ask questions," said Lambert.

The sign is traveling the country. Cedar Rapids is the only Iowa stop.

The art will be on display at The Flamingo on Monday afternoon and at a third location Tuesday, which has not been announced.

Lambert is gathering stories from voters across the nation and said he will create a book with the responses.
