Beyoncé, Jay Z, and daughter, Blue Ivy, joined the second annual Wearable Art Gala last weekend, and Blue Ivy managed to become the star of the night. During the charity auction, Blue Ivy bid a bold amount of $19,000 on a piece that she seemed to like, much to the social media’s amusement and her dad’s surprise; a painting of young Sidney Poitier by Tiffanie Anderson
Apparently Blue Ivy lost the bidding war to Tyler Perry, who took home the painting for $20,000. But that didn’t stop Blue Ivy, who next bid $10,000 and won a different piece of art made up of deconstructed law and medical texts by artist Samuel Levi Jones.
Samuel Levi Jones
The 6-year-old seems to share her parents passion for art (we all remember Beyonce dancing in front of her private art collection and Jay-Z being on stage with Koon’s XL balloon dog last year). Her successful purchase was all for a good cause as the event— being organized by Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles Lawson, was held in collaboration with Where Art Can Occur (WACO), a nonprofit providing arts mentorship programs to teenagers.
With her bold bid, Blue cemented her status as one of the very few people on earth to quash her parents – and dealers, watch out – there is a new collector in town, too!
