Art created by former Prime Minister David Cameron, acting legend Dame Judi Dench and South Yorkshire’s own Brian Blessed is going under the hammer at a mystery auction.
Bidding has opened in the Rotherham Art Project, a fundraiser for Rotherham Hospice which will see over 100 original artworks created by well-known artists, famous faces and local novices alike go under the eBay hammer. But only the organisers, South Yorkshire art regeneration project Gallery Town, has any idea who has created what. And they are not telling until all bids are in and the auction closes on October 5.
“The fun and intrigue is in trying to guess whether the style of an artwork gives away the identity of the person who created it,” said Ged Omar, manager of the Gallery Town Project.
Rotherham’s Mayor, Coun Lyndsay Pitchley, has already placed her bid, after taking a fancy to one of the postcard-sized images and taking her chance on its creator being a famous name. by putting in a secret bid in the ballot box.
Search Who Dunit! on ebay to find the collection and place your bid before Thursday.
