Picasso lottery for charity ends tomorrow: For $135 you could own Man in the Opera Hat and help rebuild ancient city of Tyre.
"There are still ten days to purchase a lottery ticket to win the 1914 painting by Pablo Picasso, Man in the Opera Hat, estimated to be worth $1 million. The artist’s grandson, Olivier Picasso, has organized an online charity raffle to benefit the rebuilding of the historic city of Tyre, Lebanon, an ancient Phoenician city with sites such as the Roman Hippodrome, which appears on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites. 50,000 tickets were made available for €100 each (about $135); 40,000 have already sold." -- Paula Newton, Glasstire.com
