The cremated remains of The Art Guys will be stored in bronze self-portrait busts,
similar to the image above. The image above is an example ONLY.

Who: The Art Guys (or what’s left of them)
What: The actual remains of The Art Guys are offered to the highest bidder
When: Bids accepted beginning April 1, 2007. Bidding closed April 1, 2008.

Beginning 12:01 a.m., April 1, 2007, The Art Guys will offer to sell themselves – the actual cremated remains of The Art Guys – to the highest bidder.

Now collectors may purchase The Art Guys – not just their work – but the actual artists. Upon agreement, The Art Guys will sell their remains in the form of their cremated ashes, to the highest bidder. For the first time, collectors may purchase an actual artist, or in this case, two artists.

The cremated ashes of The Art Guys will be housed in life-sized bronze replica busts, one for each of The Art Guys. Included with the sale of this art work, will be all studies, legal documents, the final drawing/contract and various artifacts. While the collector will legally own the cremated remains of The Art Guys, these remains will not be made available until the death of both Art Guys (date unknown). However, all other artifacts associated with this art work, as listed above, will immediately become available to the winning collector.

The Art Guys will accepts bids for the cremated remains of The Art Guys beginning 12:01 a.m., April 1, 2007. Bidding will continue until 11:59 p.m., April 1, 2008 after which the winning bid will be announced.
