Elton John's Art for AIDS

Elton John is our homepage featured collector today. His formidable talent is further matched by a fabulous fortune which allows him to acquire the world's best contemporary art. On November 10, Sotheby's will auction six works from his private collection to support AIDS research. Offerings include Tracey Emin, Jeff Koons, Cecily Brown, and others. Savvy collectors know that the value of an artist's work is often enhanced by an important "provenance" -- documented ownership of a specific creation. This sale offers a wonderful incorporation of that concept. For example, Keith Haring's 1981 ink drawing depicting three men is estimated in the range of $50 - $60K. If your budget is half that, you can still get in on the action by purchasing a photography portfolio published in honor of the occasion. Comprised of ten signed and numbered prints by some of the world's best known contemporary photographers -- e.g, Candida Hofer and David LaChapelle --, this edition will be strictly limited to 40 editions. The price for a boxed set will be about $25K, and is sure to sell out immediately. Access today's homepage AK File article via the link above, and you will be able to reserve your set through Jackson Fine Art in Atlanta, GA. Like the auction, all proceeds from this sale go to Elton John's Foundation for AIDS research. Here is a great opportunity to obtain great contemporary art; contribute to the health of others; own something from a famous star; and watch your purchase price immediately multiply. Buy it; tuck it away; and be smiling all the way to the bank next year ! In these challenging times, no stock broker, realtor, or commodities analyst can offer you the same worthwhile return. Our savvy members know that high quality fine art is always a sound and happy investment. Prudently Yours, TEAMKABINETT
