Chuck Close and Obama
"He is planning to sell 10 tapestries based on different images of Mr. Obama that will cost $100,000 apiece; ten large prints at $50,000 apiece; 40 medium-sized ones at $25,000 each and 200 small ones at $5,000 each. The artworks will be sold at an invitation-only event at the Lever House in New York on Oct. 3. (The small prints will also be offered online.) The proceeds, which could well reach $3 million, will go to the Obama Victory Fund."
