Jesse James of West Coast Choppers fame and world renowned sculpture artist Albert Paley used their unique styles and collaborated to make two sculptures. Each artist started one sculpture and finished the other. The completed sculptures were unveiled at FABTECH 2017 in Chicago on November 6 and displayed throughout the show.
Now, the sculptures will be auctioned by Wright Auction House in Chicago on November 17. This is the ONLY time Albert Paley has collaborated with anyone…these works are truly one-of-a-kind collector’s items. There are many ways to participate in this extraordinary auction: you can bid in person, via phone or the auction house app, online.

The proceeds from the sale of the sculptures will benefit the five FABTECH cosponsors, AWS, FMA, SME, PMA and CCAI supporting grants and educational opportunities for careers in the metal working trades.
