Home Art Meryl Streep’s Husband Don Gummer Fetches High Price

New Oscar winner Meryl Streep does have a successful husband, you know. Don Gummer is a big deal artist, painter, sculptor. At this week’s big Art for Water charity event for Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s Waterkeeper Alliance, a framed Gummer print was literally peeled off the wall for upwards of $10,000. Famed art collector and museum leader Agnes Gund even had her picture taken next to the piece of art. Most of Gummer’s work consists of big metal sculptures that sit on the manciured lawns of estates or in fancy office plazas. So whoever got this piece was lucky, lucky, lucky. The event, at Matthew Marks Gallery, also brought out John McEnroe, famed artist Chuck Close, Kennedy and his galpal actress Cheryl Hines, Nicole Miller, and actors Jane Seymour, Giancarlo Esposito and Gloria Reuben. Close rode around in his very modern wheel chair that looks like it’s built on a Segway. As a bonus, Debbie Harry of Blondie sang. The other artists featured included Marina Abramovic, Dan Colen, Gregory Crewdson, Willem de Kooning, Olafur Eliasson, Donald Judd, Alex Katz, Jeff Koons,  Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Longo, Sarah Morris, Catherine Opie, Raymond Pettibon, Laurie Simmons, and Josh Smith. PS Agnes Gund also drove up the bidding on a Donald Baechler print. Like she needs it!
