PAPER
on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.
L.A. artist workshop and print studio Gemini G.E.L. is undertaking a big fundraising push for the President this month, selling limited-edition "Artists For Obama" portfolios of prints by 19 artists at $28,000 bucks a pop. Contributing artists include John Baldessari (whose print may have been inspired by the Romney family dog, Seamus), Frank Gehry, Julie Mehretu, Ed Ruscha and Richard Serra among others. Proceeds will go to the Democratic National Committee, and the Obama Campaign. Between the portfolio's unveiling at Gemini's L.A. location last Thursday and an NYC event scheduled for September 24th at Gemini G.E.L. at Joni Moisant Weyl, Artists for Obama aims to raise $4.2 million for POTUS. Tickets for the reception on the 24th are $300 per person and $500 for couples. Email artforobama@joniweyl.com to RSVP.
