obama-by-dawood-bey.thumbnail.jpgFive well-known artists have teamed up to organize Art For Obama, an online auction of photographs to benefit MoveOn.org. (Due to campaign finance regulations, they can’t give the money to the Obama campaign directly.) 

Works range from Tim Davis’s photojournalistic image of Obama collecting his thoughts backstage to Elinor Carucci’s erotic photography (NSFW). Other notable contributions by Abelardo Morell, Larry Sultan, Hank Willis Thomas, Frank Gohike. The image at left is a portrait by Dawood Bey.

The auction will run from October 3, 5pm EST through October 10th, 5pm EST.
