In light of recession, the Queens Museum cancelled its annual dinner in favor of a no-cost, no-event, web-based fundraiser. It is going well! Thanks for asking.
But wait… as part of this enterprise, we are also presenting a live streaming web auction hosted by QMA Director, Tom Finkelpearl and Special Guest Auctioneer artist, Hope Ginsburg. All auction items will be available for free.
How to Bid: Non-monetary bids* will be accepted through e-mail, twitter, and over the phone. To bid we are going to ask you to be enthusiastic, creative, or just plain lucky.
When to Bid: Log on to www.qmanongala.org on TUESDAY JUNE 30, 2009, 8pm. You’ll have a chance to win World’s Fair memorabilia and other unique auction items.
*Winning bids will be “most creative praise of the arts,” for one item, “most pathetic arts anecdoe” for another, or in some cases, simply the first person we hear from.
