STUDIO CITY (CBS) — Art appraiser David Streets visited KCAL9 Monday to share items from the Dr. Jack Kevorkian auction in New York City.
Streets shared both an infamous Thanatron machine, which Kevorkian built and used in more than a hundred physician-assisted suicides, as well as one of Kevorkian’s paintings of Bach.
Kevorkian’s estate will hold an auction of his personal effects at the New York Institute of Technology on Oct. 28.
His artwork, musical compositions, handwritten documents from prison, doctor’s bag, bullet proof vest, paint kit, typewriter, pearl flute, wooden case of paints, dental retractor, master lock from prison, eye and sun glasses, as well as the Thanatron machine, will all be up for grabs.
The Thanatron machine, as well as two pictures, will be on display in Los Angeles from Oct. 11 through Oct. 18.
A percentage of the proceeds from the auction will go to Kids Kicking Cancer.
