(Starting bid was $5,500)
Due to Coronavirus, to safeguard the health of all WORLD CHANGERS, we had to cancel the annual Turning Wine Into Water event scheduled for Saturday April 18, 2020. But renowned Pittsburgh artist, Cory Bonnet, has graciously offered to create a special painting to commemorate the cancelled event and to donate the proceeds to fund a well. Cory estimates the value of the painting to be between $8,000 and $10,000. Other paintings by Cory can be seen at corybonnet.com.
Cory’s painting is entitled “Ripple No. 4″ and features the Fort Duquesne bridge with other Pittsburgh bridges surrounding the point in the background. This painting is oil and pigment on a salvaged 1890’s house beam. It measures 37″ x 18”.
