Million Dollar Movie

Riding the coattails of Yusaku Maezawa's record setting purchase of Jean-Michel Basquiat's Untitled (1982), here's a little film we did for Sesame Street several years back using the artist's work.

The budget fell slightly shy of $110.5 million.  Actually, it was probably close to $1105.00.

Outrageous fortune aside, here's what the auction winner had to say about the painting: 

When I first encountered this painting, I was struck with so much excitement and gratitude for my love of art. I want to share that experience with as many people as possible.

I wish to loan this piece — which has been unseen by the public for more than 30 years — to institutions and exhibitions around the world. I hope it brings as much joy to others as it does to me and that this masterpiece by the 21-year-old Basquiat inspires our future generations.

I love a man who loves a thing so much he wants the world to share it.
