Bid on This: Our Highly Selective Guide to the MassArt Auction this Saturday
Here’s what we’d buy, if we had the money. So go spend it for us.
This Saturday, it’s all going down. That’s when everyone will descend upon MassArt in ball gowns and tuxes to blow a wad on art. I had the chance to preview the offerings and you can too. But if you aren’t able to make it over there before the big night, here’s what you should bid on, if you’re not playing for blue chip art, that is.
Here’s the scene; lots of great art, lots of bidders. So what to buy????
