Colbert's "Art Me Up" Challenge

Satirical news reporter, Stephen Colbert, challenged the nation to send in their artistic interpretations of his portrait by Sheperd Fairey, Andres Serrano, and discussed by Steve Martin and Frank Stella.

The original portrait is going to be in the Phillips de Pury & Company auction on 2pm March 8, 2011, in New York at 450 Park Avenue, with all proceeds going to DonorsChoose- to fund art projects in high need schools

Check out this clip from last night's Colbert Report (2/28/2011) to hear him talk about the auction,
as well as the latest artistic interpretation.

Here are some of my favorite renditions:
Robert Thibeault

Brian Paik
Jerry DeFrese

Justin Bruegger
