This was one of the many quality works on view last night at the MCA's Benefit Auction Preview at their warehouse on the west side. The piece was put up for the live auction by Paul and Dedrea Gray. The benefit gala with a silent & live auction takes place next Satuday (10/28) @ 6P. More on all this later. For now, check out our first YouTubing! The video shows the sculpture in action. Sort of. It inflates and deflates.
