Okay, I knew my son was artistically talented. But this is going too far.

Today he brought home this collage:

Let's be honest. It's nothing special. A typical 2nd grade art project. (But wait! He's in 3rd grade. This thing is a year old. Why's he bringing it home now?)

But look what was on the back:

Huh? Purchasing information? Insurance value? $75???

Joey's excited comment: "Mom, let's rip it up so we can get the $75!"

I am completely mystified.


  • That is so cool.

  • Love his collage!
    Julie, the rest is spooky! NFS, as you knokw is "Not For Sale."
    If someone was trying to sell his artwork and not telling you, well I think you have the legal background...Certainly sounds like you didn't donate his work.

  • That is a really great piece.

    And the whole sale thing? Weirdness.

    Unless they had a city exhibit (they do here) and had it hanging at the library or civic center or even (yes, they do this here) local fast food restaurants.

    So maybe that was it?

  • Maybe if it was stolen, it would've been worth 75.00 in insurance money? But it wasn't for sale. To buy other works, call that number. That's how I see it.

    It's a great collage. May he make you lots of money in the future. :D

  • Julie -- You're in Ann Arbor?? I grew up there!! Wow. Small world... Been there long?

  • As if the $75 could replace this one of a kind masterpiece.

    I'm with Suzan, I think they had it hanging someplace. But they SHOULD have told you so you could go be proud of it!

  • I think I'd be calling the school for an explanation.
