Small Town in Ohio to Hold Unique Auction

 

NewswireToday - /newswire/ - Wilmington, OH, United States, 2007/03/20 - A small community in Ohio has arrived at a unique answer to the question: "How do you choose who should be included on a 1600 square foot mural being painted on the side of a Main Street building in downtown Wilmington?".

The answer, "Hold an auction!"
Auctioneer for the event, Grant Peelle, describes it, "(as) the Sistine Chapel meets Where's Waldo at what may very well become the "Who's Who" rubbernecking event of the year in our rural community of 12,000."

The Downtown Wilmington Community Improvement Corporation (DWCIC) has partnered with the City of Wilmington, Honnerlaw & Peelle Auctions, and mural artist Jason Morgan to auction the "right to pose" as a model for 27 of the figures to be included in the mural (muralauction.com). The auction will be held March 25, 2007 at the historic General Denver Hotel, 81 W. Main Street, Wilmington, Ohio, which is immediately adjacent to the mural. Reservations to the 4:00 pm reception include food, one beverage of choice, and entrance to the 5:30 pm auction. Tickets are limited to 150.

The age, gender, pose, and general characteristics for each of the 27 figures have been predetermined by the artist and are available for review at the mural portrait auction website muralauction.com. Figures include children and adults as well as a cat and two dogs.

"We would expect most figures to be sold to local residents who will choose to honor a friend or family member with the opportunity to be in the mural, but we have made special arrangements to encourage those outside of our community to participate as well. Not only will the auctioneer accept absentee bids, we are using Internet bidding as well." said committee member Steve Brown. One figure is being offered exclusively on eBay (item #300092966644). The remaining 26 figures will be offered through live Internet bidding as well. Those who cannot attend the auction in person can pre-register online to watch a live video feed of the event as well as bid on figures. Brown noted, "I am intensely curious to see who the online bidders will be. They could include a CEO looking to honor an old college buddy, a European philanthropist, or Internet savvy local residents, who knows."

The funds to create the mural were donated by an anonymous donor and the net proceeds from the benefit auction will go to the DWCIC Art Fund to support future public art projects in downtown Wilmington, Ohio. All professional services for this auction are being donated (Auctioneer Grant Peelle, the Auction Committee). Potential bidders should review the auction rules in advance of the auction, available online.
