Stephen Colbert Is Horny: Buy the Evidence and Save a School

Would you buy a one-of-a-kind collaborative work of art by Shepard Fairey, Andres Serrano and Frank Stella? How about if the piece were a Stephen Colbert portrait, festooned with devil horns and a Hitler stache?

If that piques you're interest, you are in luck.

The lovely painting above, "Portrait 5, Stephen(s)," will go on the block on March 8 at Manhattan auction house Phillips de Pury & Company.  Proceeds are earmarked for DonorsChoose.org, an organization that allows donors to pinpoint classroom projects they want to support in schools around the country.

The portrait was concocted during a December Colbert Report appearance by actor and art collector Steve Martin.

Guest artists Fairey, Serrano and Stella respectively stenciled the word “obey” on the portrait, used a Sharpie to scribble in the mustache and devil horns, and gave the painting a long gaze. 

Here's a peek at how this "unique" portrait came to be.
