Dr. Jack Kevorkian's art, belongings to be sold
DETROIT (AP) -- Paintings, writings and the iconic blue sweater of the audacious assisted suicide advocate Jack Kevorkian are going up for auction.
Kevorkian's attorney and close friend Mayer Morganroth said Friday that the late pathologist's artwork and items will be sold for the first time in late October at the New York Institute of Technology. Scheduled for auction are more than 20 paintings, Kevorkian's art kit and the sweaters he became known for donning during his high-profile activism and assistance in the suicides of dozens of people in the 1990s.
Many of the paintings depict death or dying.
Morganroth says he doesn't know how much the collection is worth but that most of the proceeds will go to a niece who is Kevorkian's sole heir and the charity Kicking Cancer for Kids.
