LOT #01: “Tribute to Charlie”

"Charlie and The Chocolate Factory"

Tribute to Charlie

Inspired by Roald Dahl’s classic, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, this original piece of artwork by Jarrett J. Krosoczka is available exclusively via this auction to benefit First Book – Manhattan! That means, not only will the winning bidder take home an unique art piece, but 100% of every dollar spent will go directly toward the cause of buying books for kids in our community. The piece is 11″ x 14″ and comes beautifully framed and matted.

    • Hi Joel – We had originally intended to end the auction this afternoon, but based on the unexpectedly low turnout, we will very likely be extending the auction through the end of the week. Details to come. Thanks!
