Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s 6-year-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter threw up bids at an art auction on Saturday…to the tune of $19,000. The three attended the 2018 Wearable Art Gala in Los Angeles, organized by Bey’s mom Tina Knowles and her husband Richard Lawson to raise money for a non-profit art and performance complex.
Lool… Blue Ivy is about to buy all the Artworks at the auction. She must have been listening to JayZ's tracks about Basquiat and investing in Art. pic.twitter.com/Nd0pFrA16z

Blue Ivy initially bid $17,000 for an acrylic painting of a young Sidney Poitier. She then went higher at $19,000. After she raised her hand, Jay-Z jokingly tried to stop her from continuing to bid, drawing laughs.
