Art Conspiracy 7, In Less Than Three Minutes



Over on The Mixmaster yesterday, Leslie recapped Saturday night's Art Conspiracy jam, the seventh annual auction benefiting a worthy local cause (this year's was Musical Angels, which provides piano lessons to hospitalized children). No doubt they raised a ginormous pile of cash; prices got high in a hurry this year, and every piece I had my eye on went for a small fortune before I could raise my hand. That, and I had a feeling that purple painting of the Trans-Am riding a rainbow wasn't going to hang in the den.

Here's our slide show, but for those wanting to relive the night in a West Dallas warehouse, and for those wondering what the fuss, here's a freshly minted video recap. And, yes, Cabe Booth's Bill Murray did elicit quite the bidding frenzy on its way to being sold for $1,300.

is where you see the "frenzy" of the Bill Murray portrait by Cabe Booth auction. last year his Dennis Hopper went for $1400.00 an artcon record high.

I'm going to write a country song called, ' I Lost My Voice for Cabe Booth's Bill Murray'.

Is it too early to vote comment of the day?

no. as it is i would be glad he can type. the buyer got Rawlin's larynx as a bonus after he fired it out onto the artwork.
