Philadelphia Weekly, September 21, 2010

This weekend, Fleisher Art Memorial makes original artwork and philanthropy affordable for the recession-dogged masses. Offering tiny, anonymously exhibited originals on a first-come-first-served basis, the fourth biennial Dear Fleisher exhibit and sale strips the marquee-name hype and caviar-set exclusivity from the art-buying racket. No blue blood or even positive bank balance are required to own one of these baby originals at $50 apiece, they have miniature prices to match their itty bitty, 4-by-6 inch sizes. That’s about $2 per square inch—a bargain even in real estate. All proceeds will support Fleisher’s arts-education programs. It’s a rare opportunity to purchase an original, decorate your bathroom and fund the arts, all without spiraling into Chapter 11. (Lauren Smith)

Sunday, Sept. 26. 1pm. $5. Fleisher Art Memorial, 719 Catharine St. 215.922.3456fleisher.org
