Visual AIDS Benefit Tonight!
If you can't make it, you should still consider bidding on one of the artist's Bowling Pins, with contributions by Polly Apfelbaum, Barton Lidice Benes, Mark Bradford, Geoffrey Hendricks, Markus Linnenbrink, Whitfield Lovell, Tom Otterness, Barbara Takenaga, Mark Wagner, and Lawrence Weiner.
Each work’s minimum bid: $1000
Phone bids can also be placed by calling during Visual AIDS office hours Mon-Fri 10AM-6PM at (212) 627-9855. Be sure to have your credit card information available. You may download the bidding form [here] and return by fax (212) 627-9815 or email (info@visualAIDS.org) We will open the silent auction with the top bid. Only winning bids will be contacted.
For your best chance of winning by pre-bid, think of your bid as a final and best offer.
Let's show those folks at Christie's and Sotheby's. $385 million ...that's nothing! (OK, so I"m sure Visual AIDS will be very happy to raise something a bit short of that, but still, don't be afraid to let your competitive spirit get the best of you for a good cause.)
