BO’s “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” is opening a handful of art exhibits at museums around the country in December and donating money to them, including one in Detroit.

Detroit’s William V. Banks Broadcast Museum & Media Center is one of just five museums across the country selected to receive $10,000 in COVID relief funds from the show.

The museum will also display a three-piece art collection selected by John Oliver. An additional $10,000 from Oliver will go to Gleaners Community Food Bank.

According to a release, the traveling art collection is titled “Last Week Tonight’s Masterpiece Gallery” and features three unique paintings, including an unusual portrait of television talk show host Wendy Williams. In addition, the museum will display a greeting card for Wendy that visitors can sign. Due to the mature nature of one of the other art pieces featuring two cuddling rats, children should be accompanied by an adult.

The art exhibit will be available for viewing at the museum:
