"Heroes" Art Auction For Charity

"Heroes" Art Auction For Charity


On NBC's "Heroes," the paintings by prophetic hero Isaac Mendez foretell the future for the show's characters. In real life, the art pieces could help bring a brighter future for people suffering from epilepsy. This month, NBC.com plans to auction off the artwork created by graphic illustrator Tim Sale and donate the proceeds to the Epilepsy Foundation.

This is particularly significant for actor Greg Grunberg, who plays mind-reading Matt Parkman on "Heroes" and whose son is epileptic. Eric R. Hargis, President and CEO of the Epilepsy Foundation, says "We are thankful that Greg Grunberg, inspired by his own real-life hero, his son Jake, who has epilepsy, has joined with us to increase awareness of epilepsy."

For more details about the auction,


Hargis continues: "With the help of Greg, those like him, and partners like NBC, we can end the stigma associated with epilepsy in this generation."

According to the NBC press release, the list of artwork includes "Exploding Man," "Eclipse," "Claire on the Stairs," and "Hiro and T-Rex." Bidding will go live on March 26 at 6 p.m. (PT) and will close at 12 a.m. (PT) on March 28. The second auction will go live at 6 p.m. (PT) on April 2 and close at 12 a.m. (PT) on April 4. Until then, check out this very cool gallery of Sale's artwork.

Tim Sale's a very good artist for this project. He manages to make the fantastic look prosaic. It's quite unique. Don't fail to let the human factor be a factor at all. --Andrew Bird, "Tables and Chairs"
