Paley-James Sculpture Auction

Paley-James Sculpture Auction

Last week, FABTECH’s Grand Opening Ceremony featured the unveiling of The Paley-James Project sculptures, collaborative creations of renowned sculpture artist, Albert Paley, and Jesse James of West Coast Choppers and Monster Garage fame. Sharing a passion for metal working and the many technologies it encompasses, the pair donated their time to this project in a joint effort to highlight manufacturing and the diverse and interesting career opportunities it presents.

The entire production process will be shown in a PBS Documentary scheduled to air in the Spring of 2018.

These unique works of art, displayed in the McCormick Place Grand Concourse throughout the FABTECH show, will be auctioned by Wright Auction House in Chicago this Friday, November 17th at 12:00 PM Central time. Proceeds from their sale will be shared by the sponsoring FABTECH partner associations (CCAI, AWS, FMA, SME and PMA) and invested in educational programs supporting manufacturing.

Please help us promote this important event to the industry by sharing this information with your networks – or better yet, why not place a bid? Bids can be placed in person, online, by phone or absentee.
