826NYC Art Show
WeÃ¢â¬â¢re a little worried about attending tonightÃ¢â¬â¢s 826NYC Art Show, a benefit for the Dave EggersÃ¢â¬“founded writing center for children in Brooklyn, because the auctioneer is none other than funnyman John Flansburgh of They Might Be Giants. So, you see, weÃ¢â¬â¢ll be having too much to drink at the pre-auction cocktail hour, then laughing too much at FlansburghÃ¢â¬â¢s jokes, and thenÃ¢â¬”before you know itÃ¢â¬”buying way too many pieces of art with the money we do not have. Works for sale include the quirky McSweeneyÃ¢â¬â¢s-approved drawings of Marcel Dzama (of the Royal Art Lodge), humorous watercolors by Jockum NordstrÃÂ¶m and Mamma Andersson, and the haunting photography of An-My LÃÂª. On second thought, we canÃ¢â¬â¢t think of a better way to splurge.
