Thank You, MAO.
Well, here's a new way to fill the Creative Time coffers: Win online art quizzes. The enthusiastic and generous art blogger Modern Art Obsession (MAO) held a contest, asking readers to guess the winning bid for Andy Warhol's Mao at last week's Contemporary Art sale at Sotheby's. The winner would garner a contribution to an arts organization of their choosing. My friend, co-worker and fellow art fiend, Cesar, won the contest with a guess of $550,000 (The final bid was $772,000.). Without missing a beat, he chose Creative Time as the recipient of the contribution. How cool is that? As if I didn't love MAO's blog enough already. And Cesar, of course. Cesar rules.
