Appropriating from the LACE Auction (If I can’t be Robin Hood can I be Richard Prince? and other questions I ask myself at night)

Herein you will find pictured objects (good lord geoff, say it easy: pictures of objects) up for bidding at the upcoming LACE auction (May 16, info below) as well as some stuff I found online about Richard Prince. And then I just had fun.  You should, too. Go to LACE.
