Antonio De Luca, who heads a communication design studio in Berlin, has masterminded an art show that brings affordable art to the public and benefits a worthy cause. The 100 $how, which opens tonight at Wieden + Kennedy, Portland, will feature 100 Illustrators, with more than 100 works to be exhibited and for sale for 100 $.
The original art can be purchased directly from thegallery walls on opening night. But if you can’t get to Portland, online purchases begin this morning and continue through February. This is the second installment of the international fundraiser, which launched with the 100 Euro Show last year in Amsterdam; the third will take place in Berlin, starting April 29th.
