Shepard Fairey for Art for Life Charity Auction


Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation’s 10th annual Art for Life Charity Auction ends today and along with it, a chance to take home Close Knit (2009) by Shepard Fairey. With a current bid of $28,500 and $5,000 bid increments, this one’s certainly no bargain but will benefit the foundation’s mission of providing disadvantaged urban youth with exposure and access to the arts, as well as providing exhibition opportunities to under-represented artists and artists of color. Those interested can view lots and place bids via charitybuzz.

The highlight of last year’s auction was also donated by Fairey – one out of the only three existing original Obama Hope canvases which generated $108,000, far above its $30,000 estimate.
