The Week contest: Payola art

This week's question: An heiress donated $10 million to a Southern California college in exchange for her paintings — which a Los Angeles Times critic called "frankly terrible" — to be featured in an on-campus museum named after her. What should an exhibit of her pay-to-play art be called?
