Art sale coolness

I got a call a few weeks ago from MCAD, my alma-meter, I naturally thought they were doing some fund raising since I have gotten many calls for donations from them in the past.  Well, the conversation got a bit strange quite quickly, the dude said, “I wanted to call you before I sent out the invitation to you” I am like, invitation?  “Wanted to give you a heads up so you know what this is all about” interest piqued at this point…  The long and short of it, MCAD holds an art sale every November for sale of art from students and recent alumni as a fund raiser for both the college and students.  There are a bunch of people that support the art sale and go every year and buy lots of art aka. spend a lot of dough.  Well the college is throwing these dedicated and well off supporters a thank you event at a major art collector’s house to say thanks.  This collector who is hosting this event has bought a lot of art from the art sales, and MCAD was inviting a hand full of artist that is in his collection from the art sale to be present, and I am one of them.  Fuck, I am one of them.  I feel honored first that I am a part of his collection and even more honored that I was invited to this event, fuck that is cool!  I am a bit freaked out and I have no idea which piece he has but I am vary exited to go and rub elbows with art lovers from around the cities and see a long ago sold piece of art!  I think I will live tweet this event so if you are interested follow me at twitter (user name pexa link http://twitter.com/#!/pexa ) if nothing else I will be posting another post with more details!
