Jokers get auctioned

Gavin’s 2001 Art:pack contribution, will be auctioned off on Wednesday April 10th.
The original art works from Art:pack, the best-selling deck of cards designed by leading contemporary artists, including a joker by Bono, will be auctioned by Christie’s at the Royal Hibernian Academy on April 10th 2002. Art:pack has sold over 25,000 copies and has raised almost €500,000 for the Irish Hospice Foundation.
Viewing takes place on Tuesday April 9th 2002 at the Royal Hibernian Academy in Ely Place from 12 noon to 5pm and on Wednesday April 10th from 11am to 4pm followed by a reception at 6pm with the auction itself at 7.30pm. Any art lover interested in owning an Art:pack original is invited to attend. Christie’s will also be auctioning a number of Art:packs signed by all of the contributing artists – a definite collector’s item.
