LA Mayor Eric Garcetti among 200 people to attend Hunter Biden's art show

Hunter Biden hosted an art show in Hollywood on Friday for several California elites, including Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.

Garcetti was a national co-chairman of President Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign and was nominated by the president to serve as the U.S. ambassador to India. Also in attendance was Shepard Fairey, creator of the Obama/Hope poster, and the musician Moby.


Approximately 200 people reportedly attended the Hollywood event that took place in a large white room in Milk Studios, Mother Jones reports.

Hunter Biden's gallerist, George Bergès, is reportedly charging up to $500,000 per piece of artwork, the Atlantic reports.

Critics argue the event presents a conflict of interest, with buyers writing large checks directly to the president's son. To address the ethical concerns, the White House partnered with the gallerist to lay down some ground rules. Hunter Biden, for example, must not know the identity of any of the buyers or discuss the sale of any of the pieces of art during the event, instead focusing the discussion on his creative process.

“There’s no mechanism for monitoring, no mechanism for notifying the public if confidentiality is broken, no mechanism for tracking if buyers get access to [the government]," said Walter Shaub, the former head of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics.


Rep. James Comer, a Kentucky Republican, expressed his concerns with the showing earlier this month.

"There's a lot of red flags there with Hunter. Hunter is a national security problem," Comer told Newsmax. "I think the Biden administration knows that. That's why they constantly try to defer when they take questions about Hunter."
