It’s Friday and you know what that means — we stopped giving a shit at least three days ago. As such, we’re bringing you the most idiotic GoFundMe campaign you’ll see today.
Terry Taylor of New York is ambitiously seeking a cool $13 million to acquire as much of David Bowie’s extensive art collection as he can. Oh, and he also needs a few bucks to get to the actual auction. And probably a pony, while we’re at it.
David Bowie was one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. His private art collection will be auctioned in November. It is my goal to bid and purchase as much as i can, so that it may be displayed publicly. I think its important for the world to be able to see the art that inspired a true genius… The goal price is an estimation of the collections worth, plus expenses to attend the auction. Obviously its a lofty price, but we’re really just looking to purchase whatever we can from the collection..
Sotheby’s will be hosting the auction, which features 400 pieces from Bowie’s personal collection, including 200 pieces from British artists such as Frank Auerbach, Damien Hirst, Henry Moore and Graham Sutherland.
Taylor is $10 in toward his multi-million dollar goal. YOU CAN DO IT!
