With Heroes on hiatus yet again and not due to return until April 23rd, the hardcore fans are no doubt already starting to go through withdrawls – I know I am. Well, now there is a way to have a little piece of Heroes history with you for years to come and you’ll get the fuzzy feeling that comes with helping out a great cause at the same time!
NBC, in cooperation with the Epilepsy Foundation, is running an online art auction where all of the proceeds will be donated to the Epilepsy Foundation. What art is up for auction, you ask? None other than the fantastic pieces painted by Isaac Mendez in the hit NBC TV series Heroes! Now is your chance to own a piece of TV history, not only showing your support for the best show in television, but also supporting a great cause.
The painting up for grabs marks a pivotal moment in the TV series: “The Exploding Man”, “Homecoming”, “The Eclipse” and “Hiro Battles T-Rex“. The auction for the first two begins March 26st at 6pm PST, while the auction for the latter two kicks off April 2nd at 6pm PST. My personal favorite is “Hiro BattlesT-Rex”. I just wish I could afford to throw a bid in. How awesome would it be to have one of these fantastic pieces hanging in your living?
“You saw it in Heroes. Now you can own it yourself. Imagine a signed limited edition print of Hiro and the T-Rex hanging in your very own homeâ€”and the original drawing that inspired it from artist Tim Sale. These limited edition prints are actually displayed on canvas and stretched over wooden frames, just like in Isaac’s studio. On March 26, you can bid on these prints and other memorable artwork from the show. You not only have a shot at owning a piece of history, but you’ll also support the ongoing efforts of the National Epilepsy Foundation.
Over 2.7 Million Americans are living with epilepsy everyday. The Epilepsy Foundation works to ensure that people with seizures can participate in all life experiences. So join Greg Grunberg of Heroes and make a bid on exclusive Heroes artwork. In this auction, everyone goes home a winner.”
