TROY, Mich., June 20 /PRNewswire/ — Kmart Corporation is opening the vault containing over 1000 works of fine art to the public for the first time ever. Along with this stunning art collection, executive furniture will be displayed. While most pieces of art are available for immediate purchase, a limited number of high-end pieces will be sold through a bid process.
Much to my surprise this doesn’t mean a trove of Velvet Elvis’s (Elvi?) and Leroy Neiman prints but …
Oils, watercolors, photography, posters, prints, tapestries, and sculptures and even a 15th- Century Chinese Ming Dynasty watercolor on silk. Works of art by artists such as Vasarely, Deperthes, Leger, Loewy, Alvar, Agam, Trova, Bolotowsky, Mayhew, Summers and Zavaro, to name a few, are among the many artists that are featured. There is also a rare Picasso tapestry on display that will be sold on a bid process.
Don’t know where they got ’em all but I guarantee it wasn’t at Kmart.
