The Grand Finale of The Dubai Dollar Project at Media One Hotel
and there is still a chance for you to own a $20,000 original piece for just $1
On Wednesday 3rd April The Dubai Dollar Project will come to a close at Media One Hotel, with a Grand Finale at THE DEK on 8. The Money Collection has been on display for the last 28 days and consists of 28 originals by Jim Wheat, a multi-faceted artist and author with a message to communicate.
Dollarsandart was created by Jim, who was spurred on at a time of deep loss to produce his first collection entitled The Money Collection. Jim’s art uses a variety of materials to produce each piece; from old and new money from various currencies, to the mediums of sand, everyday items, resin and oils. It all has a quirky and humorous feel to it but offers a more profound intention to encourage people to question what money means to them.
Jim is also a very brave man! He has single-handedly launched his art to the UAE and the world, to establish himself as an artist! His exuberance and passion for THE DUBAI DOLLAR PROJECT are what have made this exhibition such a success over the last 28days! Hundreds of people have been making a bid as there is $64,000 of The Money Collection available for 29 lucky winners! Jim wants everyone to share his wealth within the art world.
Anyone is welcome to come down to the closing event and there will still be time to make a bid up to 6pm...but don’t wait until last minute as you can still come over this week and make a bid for your favourite pieces! Every time you visit the exhibition you are entitled to complete one FREE $ claim slip to enter into the ballot box.
All the $claim slips will be entered into the draw for INDULGEN$E, worth $20,000 and the winner will just need to hand over $1 to claim this original. There will then be another draw for 28 hand embellished prints of all the pieces in the Money Collection, framed and signed, worth over AED5000 each. Jim is planning to produce a book depicting the journey of his Money Collection so all winners will also feature in the Dubai Dollar Project book in 2014.
The finale starts from 6.30pm and besides the draw DJ Da Sendri will be on the decks spinning the famous 'money tracks'; whilst you enjoy DEK on 8 nibbles and maybe partake of a few sherbets.
Entry is FREE for everyone but dont forget to bring $1 just in case you are a winner; ready for the next chapter of dollarsandart!
