We hope our art will fetch a high price in the silent auction and assist the Deliver the Dream foundation to help families in need.
Wichita, Kansas (PRWEB) October 16, 2013
overstockArt.com, the online art gallery for hand painted art, has donated one of their new Luxury Line masterpieces, “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I" by Gustav Klimt to Deliver the Dream foundation, a cause that helps families in need to gain strength and mend their spirits in organized retreats.
The painting donated is huge -- 30" inches wide and 40" inches tall canvas. It is part of the new Luxury Line paintings overstockArt.com has developed as the paintings are actually created with gold oil paints, giving the art an extra shine.
The painting is adorned by a five inches wide, museum-quality, all wood frame chopped and joined by overstockArt.com. The total size of the piece is therefore, 40 inches wide and 50 inches high! That's over five feet tall.
"We were touched by Deliver the Dream's work and wanted to help in bringing joy to these family's lives,” says overstockArt.com’s CEO David Sasson. "We hope our art will fetch a high price in the silent auction and assist the foundation to help families in need."

About Deliver the Dream:
Deliver the Dream helps families suffering from a serious illness or crisis. There program invites up to 15 families, free of charge, to one of their retreat locations. Each family that attends has a member - whether it’s a child or parent – living with an illness/ crisis such as Cancer, Autism, HIV/AIDS or Cerebral Palsy. These retreats allow families to relax, enjoy time together, forge new friendships and create support groups with the other families suffering from the same illness/crisis. When one person in a family is sick, the entire family is impacted and there are very few organizations nationwide that focus on the whole family unit like Deliver the Dream.
