Christie's Auction House - See the Masterpieces Even the Museum's Don't Have

By: David Behringer (The Two Percent)

Crash Christie's: 12 & 13 May 2018

Rockefeller Center, New York City

What it is:

THIS weekend is the biggest Christie's Auction preview of the year (when hundreds of multi-million dollar masterpieces are hung in their building like a museum for 1 weekend only!!).  I was going to create an illegal audio tour for it (see the teaser trailer here), but ran out of time. SO!! Instead of the audio tour, I'm offering private tours of that preview on Saturday and Sunday!  I'll walk you through it PLUS take you inside an auction room (there won't be an auction at the time, but we'll jump in the room). Want to get excited about it?  Seriously watch the trailer.  It's that, but a REAL tour, rather than an audio tour.
