Jones by Chuck Close, a C-print by Spencer Tunick and a walnut armchair by George Nakashima. The works are on display on the BAM site and in the the lobby of the Opera House on Lafayette Avenue in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.
Bidding starts at as little as $100 or $200 for some items, with a few pieces, like the Chuck Close portrait, starting at $20,000. Many pieces, especially the more expensive ones, are still awaiting their first bid.
