As our Wienerfest grows near, one lucky baller now has the chance to own this exclusive letterpress print “The 1%” by William Powhida! This generous donation originally came out of a request from Michelle Vaughan as a birthday gift for her husband, the art market and finance journalist Felix Salmon. Painstakingly typeset by Vaughan herself, we think it would make an excellent Christmas gift for any malcontent in your family. We want it.

We expect this one to go fast, so hurry! Be the first to donate $750 dollars, and this print will be yours. That purchase comes with the added bonus of keeping New York’s best art blog running.

For those with a special taste for irreverence, our first two donors at the $500 level will win an art tour of either Chelsea or the Lower East Side with our boss, Art Fag City founder and editor Paddy Johnson. She’s spent the last seven years, boots on the ground, combing the scene; if you want an inside look into emerging art spaces to watch, this is about as good as it gets.

If you would like the print or a once-in-a-lifetime Art Fag tour, all you gotta do is ask. Please specify your desire in the message field of our donation page and we’ll hook you up. While you’re at it, hurry up and get your tickets for our official Art Fag City Wienerfest and Fundraiser below:
