ARTWALK NY - An event not to miss!! November 3rd.

ARTWALK NY - Monday, November 3rd at 6:30pm, the Metropolitan Pavilion(125 West 18th street)

NY_ArtWalk With the US economy crashing.. it's often the case that both Art Dealers, and Art Auction Houses take a very long time to adjust prices to reality (aka...these "new economy" levels)

So, believe it or not,

Charity auctions are one of the first organizations to realize the current reality with much lower contemporary art prices.

Hence the OPPORTUNITY for collectors!!

One of MAO's favorite charities is The Coalition for the Homeless.

Since there's a good chance many of MAO's Wall Street buddies are unemployed, broke and probably soon to be homeless.. it's one cause that's very close to home.

 Also.. our wonderful friends at The Coalition for the Homeless, are offering a MAO Collector discount on tickets...

 A limited number of discounted (50% off) tickets are available for MAO's friends, at the price of 2 for $200 (regularly $200 each)

To purchase tickets, please call 212-776-2056, or visit ww.coalitionforthehomeless.org and enter the discount code COLLECTOR

Tickets available on a first-come basis.  All proceeds help the Coalition for the Homeless provide a safety net for the thousands of New Yorkers in need.

Here's the press release..
