The 10 Most Expensive Artworks Ever Reproduced on a Dorm Room Wall

Posted by on Fri, August 8th, 2014 at 10:00 am

It’s time to hop on The Swagwagon, where once a week we review viral & trending topics, and show you how they can earn you Swag Bucks.

Our first Swagwagon is inspired by a post found on So Bad It’s Good.

Every year around this time, college students throughout the world (especially freshmen) are asking themselves one very important question:

What do I hang on my dorm room wall?

And while the John Belushi shot from the 80′s cult classic “Animal House” is priceless from a cultural and historical perspective, here are 10 works of art that most students (unless their last names are Kardashian or Hilton) will not be hanging on their walls.

The artworks listed below are the 10 most expensive in the world. But they won’t earn you any Swag Bucks. Luckily for you, our partner allposters.com carries them all at a much, much more affordable price. Plus you’ll earn 5 SB per dollar to boot.
