Update-BOMB Magazine’s 28th Anniversary Gala & Silent Auction 4/17/09

Well Last night was kind of a wild night for me...
I started @The Bomb Magazine 28th Anniversary Benefit Party @ The National Arts Club...grand bash see below.

Tickets started @ $250.00 and up for this  great benefit party. 
Great drinks and very tasty food was served as people were honored and bidding for the art was going on. The works chosen from ARTmostfierce to promote the event were the ones the bidders were most enthusiastic about. No wonder... I mean Mickalene  Thomas, Cindy Sherman and Marilyn Minter?
You can not go wrong with these ladies!

Toaster,  Artist Marina Abramovik

Glamour Girls take a break of being fabulous to take action in the bidding of art

Paul Morris BOMB Magazine Director of Marketing  and friends party up

The Cindy Sherman and Mickalene Thomas bidding battle!
I put a second bid on Cindy's (I kind of wanted it) but the original bidder came back and bid again, so I lost! 
Went for a cool $2,300.00 (still a deal)

Everybody was gushing about the very small
one of the kind 4 x 6 inches Mickalene Thomas black & white photos both of them fetching very good prices and proving once again that Mickalene is one recession proof artist!

For the skeptics, The Marilyn Minter Skateboard fetched $1,900.00 with only 2 bids . Not bad right?
