Yesterday December 14 at the New York IMS show, rock ‘n’ roll icon Steven Tyler was a featured guest during David Uhl’s unveiling of “The Reckoning”, a stunning oil on canvas to benefit arts and education in public schools. David created a monumental painting of Steven Tyler on a motorcycle riding through a crowd of paparazzi. This 6-foot tall original oil painting, titled “The Reckoning” is the largest effort by David Uhl to date and is now offered as limited edition fine art prints signed by both David and Steven. All profits from fine art print sales will be donated to Donor Choose, an innovative online charity connecting classroom requests from teachers in high-need communities with donors who want to help.
The idea behind this project has its roots in Steven’s active fight for privacy rights that resulted in submitting the entitled Steven Tyler Act into the State of Hawaii legislature. This legislation was intended to give more privacy to public figures, such as government officials and celebrities on vacation, raise awareness of these intrusions and afford public figures the right to sue aggressive paparazzi for trespassing and taking unwanted photographs.
Sales of the canvas Fine Art prints will continue through the end of the 43rd Annual Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, January 19th 2014. The total number of prints sold at that point will be tallied and the edition will be closed forever. Each print will be hand-signed by David and Steven Tyler and will come numbered with a Certificate of Authenticity. Print Specifics: Image size 18×24, $1,295 framed. Image size 24×32, $1,895 framed. Image size 30×40, $2,895 framed.
Edition numbers will be assigned as orders are taken. At the time of order, a $400 deposit is required. On January 19, 2014, when the final edition size is determined, shipping of the prints will begin. At that time, final payment will be required. Contact Greg Rhodes. 303-913-4840
