Sotheby's to auction stars from the Euro Sculpture
In the course of an extensive overhaul in 2015, the acrylic glass panels of the yellow Euro Sculpture stars were replaced. The ones removed were later signed by celebrities and artists such as Rainer Calmund, David Garett, Götz Alsmann, Andreas Bourani, Matthias Reim, Martin Schmitt, and many others. On 2 February 2017, at 7 p.m., Sotheby's will offer the stars for auction at Frankfurt's Palmengarten, with the proceeds going to the cancer aid organisation Hilfe für krebskranke Kinder Frankfurt eV.

The URL below takes you to a gallery of pictures showing the celebrities that have signed the stars.
