American artist Jeff Koons created an 18-and-a-half foot sculpture titled Coloring Book that was auctioned off at a charity event near Cannes and managed to fetch $13.2 million USD for AIDS research. A long list of celebrities were in attendance at the annual amfAR event “Cinema Against AIDS” including Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Fassbender and Sienna Miller among many others. The event took place at the Hotel de Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes and included other works up for auction including a Banksy donated by Leonardo DiCaprio which sold for more than a signed Picasso and a portrait of Elizabeth Taylor by Andy Warhol. In total, the evening took in over $35 million USD for the organization.
