WANTAUGH, N.Y., Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- "We are excited that Leigh and Leslie have decided to bring their excitement, passion and expertise to the Classic Car Auction space," stated Joshua Wekstein Co-Founder Rolling Art Advisors. "The Kenos have a long history in the fine art and classic car world with a wealth of knowledge stemming from their various roles as collectors, enthusiasts and professional advisors. Their presence in the space is welcome as classic cars begin to be recognized as worthy investments."
Rolling Art Advisors, LLC applauds the work of the Keno brothers for helping to further the recognition of classic cars as art forms and helping to bring additional transparency to the classic car auction buying process. The Keno's and Proxibid have teamed up for their first "Rolling Sculpture" auction to be held at 5 pm on November 19, 2015 at the Skylight at Clarkson Square.
"What the Keno's offer which stands out is the inclusion of a designer's perspective on select lots. This really hammers home the importance of the underlying artistic and design elements of the fine motorcars they have up for auction," noted Rolling Art Advisors Co-Founder Marc Sharinn. "We appreciate their focusing the spotlight on the artistic elements of car design, which we thinks help underscore the true values of classic cars and furthers the case for them as good investments."
Over 60 years ago New York's Museum of Modern Art displayed the "Eight Automobiles," exhibit, which in the words of then-MOMA curator of architecture Arthur Drexler, proclaimed that automobiles should be viewed as "rolling sculpture." To paraphrase famed coachbuilder Sergio Pininfarina, cars were born old, 'baroque or gothic'. In the decades which have passed since the MOMA's groundbreaking exhibit, elements of automotive form and function have converged, leading the to the creation of more perfect and ultimately, beautiful forms. Two fine examples are the Lamborghini Miura P400 S and the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 both of which will be on display and for sale at the upcoming auction.
"We feel that classic cars should be seen in their proper light, as a type of Rolling Art and our happy that the Kenos share our view," stated Co-Founder Sharinn. "We think New York City as always, will prove to be ahead of the curve in terms of their early recognition of classic cars as Rolling Art and will welcome the Kenos with open arms and bidding paddles held high."
