Art produced by robot dog raises $40,000 for Ukrainian refugees
A painting created by a robotic dog sold for $40,000 at a charity auction to raise money for Ukrainian refugees. The piece, Sunrise March, was painted in the New York studio of Polish-American artist Agnieszka Pilat. The dog, “Spot,” is a creation of Boston Dynamics and retails online for a cool $75,000.
The auction took place Friday night at the San Francisco home of Olympic gold-medal figure skater Brian Boitano and his partner, singer Franc D’Ambrosio. Proceeds from the show will go directly to the Polish Dominican Friars, who are providing aid on the front lines of the conflict.
The auction was part of a larger ticketed event which has so far raised more than $250,000
