Late comedian Joan Rivers had a reputation for being charitable, and her will, recently obtained by Page Six, upholds her generous character.

Of the estimated $150 million fortune Rivers left behind, she designated a portion of the funds to go to several nonprofit and non-governmental organizations: Guide Dogs for the Blind, God’s Love We Deliver, the Jewish Guild for the Blind, the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Jewish Home and Hospital Foundation.

Melissa Rivers, the “Fashion Police” star’s only child, was named an executor of the estate. Other beneficiaries include the entertainer’s grandson Cooper, niece Caroline Waxler and nephew Andrew Waxler, and five members of Rivers’ staff.

Performance Artist Does Impromptu Reenactment Of ‘The Origin Of The World.’ Yes, THAT Painting.

If you’ve ever gazed into the beautiful void that is Gustav Courbet’s “The Origin of the World,” you’re probably familiar with just how provocative (and NSFW) the painting is.

As the title cleverly references, it is a portrait of the female genitalia, through which all human beings enter into life. Combining the romance of realism and the lustful voyeurism of erotic art, it’s, well, heavy stuff.

So, you can only imagine what would happen if someone — let’s say, a daring performance artist — attempted to reenact the racy anatomic still life from 1866… in front of an audience of museum patrons assembled at Paris’ Musée d’Orsay to see Courbet’s masterpiece face-to-face.

For 50 Years, This Free Love Pioneer Has Painted The Beauty Of Female Sexuality

For over 50 years, Dorothy Iannone has been bringing the ethos of free love to the world of painting. Transforming her wild brand of “ecstatic unity” into vibrant color palettes and unabashed nude forms, her artworks illustrate the beauty and mystical sublime of sex, sex and more sex.

At 80 years old, Iannone is still a poster woman for the depths and possibilities of erotic art. While her naked, fornicating figures fell under the swift guillotine of 1960s censorship, today the octogenarian is running off of several straight years of gallery attention. Solo exhibition after retrospective, the art world seems eager to cozy up to the self-taught artist and her canvases teeming with female sexuality and spiritual love. No longer deemed “pornographic,” Iannone’s hailed as a “high priestess, matriarch, sex goddess.”

11 Mesmerizing 3D Chalk Art Masterpieces That Will Melt Your Brains

There are few joys quite like turning an everyday sidewalk into a gaping cave cascading with rainbow waterfalls. To achieve such an uncanny phenomenon, you can either experiment with some seriously hallucinogenic substances, or stumble across the visual treasure trove that is three-dimensional chalk art.

In the past few years the grassroots art form of 3D chalk has become a medium to be reckoned with. As the visual amalgamation of optical illusions, hyperrealism and public street art, the accessible technique appeals to pretty much everyone. Aside from its hypnotic affect and impressive technique, chalk art rules because the subject matter can truly be anything. Take a look at our roundup below, which includes everything from a giant snail to a game of Pac-Man. Just try and tell us this isn’t the most democratic, and psychedelic, art form out there.

The Architecture Of The Future Is Far More Spectacular Than You Could Imagine

“Every great architect is — necessarily — a great poet. He must be a great original interpreter of his time, his day, his age.”

Those are the words of one undeniably great architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, whose visions of harmonious design and innovating urban planning amounted to his own brand of organic architecture. We’d argue that Wright wasn’t just an interpreter of his time — he was able to foresee the needs and desires of ages ahead of him. The architect is — necessarily — a visionary capable of seeing into the future.

In the spirit of architecture’s fortune telling abilities, we’ve put together a list of our favorite contemporary designs that shed light on the future of our visual world.

Ever since I was little, I’m always fascinated with the images printed on the pages of travel magazines. Until today, those images still lingers in my memory. I started traveling to fulfill my dream, and that dream is to turn those images into reality, to experience how it feels like to be in a place where I have imagined myself to be. Now, I’m living the dream!
