ARTISTS PAINT DOG BOWLS FOR A GOOD CAUSE


FROM THE LOS ANGELES TIMES

A basic food and water dog bowl costs as little as $3 at your local pet supply store.

But if you’re in the mood for something much more upscale, you could shell out upwards of $2,500 for a bowl painted by name brand artists Ed Ruscha, David Hockney or Charles Arnoldi.

Will your four legged friend know the difference? Probably not. But you will.

The auction house BONHAMS & BUTTERFIELDS will be selling dog bowls painted by prominent artists to benefit PAWS/LA, an organization that assists senior citizens and the disabled in keeping their pets.

The sale is set to take place NOVEMBER 23 at Bonhams’ location in L.A., with a preview set for NOVEMBER 19 to 21.

(The bowls are included in Bonhams’ MADE IN CALIFORNIA sale.)

Other artists to contribute dog bowls are Ross Bleckner, Robert Longo and Kenny Scharf.

Each bowl measures 11 inches in diameter and has an estimated value of $2,500 to $3,500, according to Bonhams.
