What would sculptor Constantin Brâncusi say if he saw people knocking down bowling pins in the form of his "Golden Bird" sculpture?
Ideally, he'd enjoy it as much as the guests at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts' annual Art Perchance event Aug. 19.
Part fundraiser, part free-for-all, the event featured fortune tellers, live music and art-inspired games. "It's a fun, funky carnival event," said Katie Searle, president of the Friends of the Institute.
Art lovers could enter raffles for 40 works of art donated by local artists. Lucky winners included friends and photographers Amy Anderson and Sarah Rust Sampedro, who, quite coincidentally, won each other's works.
"I never thought I'd win," said Anderson, who was thrilled to take home an image of Sampedro's 7-year-old son, part of a yearlong project, which can be found at http:// artandmotherhood.com. "Her [raffle] bucket was so full ... what are the chances?"
