Great Gifts: Art with Heart

As the holidays roll around, it's nearly impossible to escape the barrage of "gift guides" in magazines or on t.v. or the internet. Included in many are lists for the "person who has everything".

Got a oligarch to buy for this holiday? Is money no object? Why not buy some art with heart.

Tonight, RxArt is holding their annual auction in New York, which features pieces from Ed Ruscha, Nate Lowman (MK Olsen's former-bf), and Alex Katz, among others. All of the proceeds from the auction go to support RxArt's mission, which is "to place original fine art in patient, procedure and examination rooms of healthcare facilities to improve otherwise sterile environments through contemporary art, promote healing, and inspire hope in patients, families and staff."

Of course, I'm being a little cheeky here but if money were no object, I'd snatch up any of the artwork for a fantastic present:

Get your American Express Centurion cards ready, and give a gift with heart!
