ESTATE OF JAMES BROWN TO BE AUCTIONED, AT CHRISTIE'S AUCTION HOUSE IN NYC, VIEWING JULY 11-16, AUCTION JULY 17, 2008
THE OTHER DAY I GOT A E-MAIL FROM MY AFRICAN DANCING FRIEND MALAIKA ADERO, SHE IS A EDITOR AT SIMON & SCHUSTER PUBLISHERS, HER OFFICE IS AROUND THE CORNER FROM CHRISTIE'S AUCTION HOUSE. THE E-MAIL READ.
Starting July 16th the effects of James Brown will be on display and on auction at Christie’s auction house (which happens to be on 49th Street next to my S&S building where I work. I have to check this out…maybe there’s an item I’d want to bid on (a cape, a photo). Anyway, it will be fun just to SEE what’s in the collection. So, if you’re in the city, check it out.
I PLAN TO GO DOWN TO CHRISTIE'S AND VIEW THE ITEMS, AT THE MOST, I WILL PURCHASE THE CATALOGUE OF THE JAMES BROWN ESTATE. HOPEFULLY A MUSEUM OR SERIOUS COLLECTORS WILL PURCHASE MAJOR ITEMS FROM THE ESTATE.
