Aaron Rose’s Fire Sale video and closing day event Saturday July 21, 2012

Almost a month ago, a very good friend to so many people, Andreas Trolf was in a very serious motorbike accident.
While we are grateful daily that we still have him in our lives, after three weeks in hospital, countless surgeries and a long road ahead to recover, his medical costs are huge.

The woman who hit Andreas was both unlicensed and uninsured which leaves the financial burden on Andreas.

As a small gesture to try and help in this awful situation, Aaron Rose’s Fire Sale, currently up at Known Gallery will donate 100% of proceeds on Saturday July 21 to Andreas’ recovery fund.

It is the final day of the sale and there are still countless bargains to be had. None of the items will be priced, rather it will be a donation system, with each person donating whatever they wish to the fund in exchange for their purchases.

ESPN | Aaron Rose’s Fire Sale

July 11 2012 . 12:43am

It’s not unusual to see a line around the block on Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles, Calif., and it typically heralds a much anticipated shoe release or a coveted hipster collaboration. However this past weekend the line, hundreds deep, was for a garage sale, and more absurd than that — the garage sale was held in an art gallery. However, this was no typical pile of junk and this gallery’s not steeped in highbrow art credentials, but rather a bastion for street culture.

The Aaron Rose Fire Sale at Known Gallery brought out the crowds long before the doors were scheduled to open. According to legendary pro skater Eric Dressen, who works at Will Rise Tattoo next door to Known Gallery, “Kids started lining up around 4 p.m., and they just keep coming.” Savvy collectors were hoping to score, as Aaron Rose’s credentials speak volumes about the type of artifacts that were offered up at the sale.

Originally from Woodland Hills, Calif., influenced by the graphics on punk rock album covers, graffiti and skateboard decks, Rose founded Alleged Gallery in New York’s Lower East Side in 1992, helping to launch the art careers of Barry McGee, Mark Gonzales and Ed Templeton among many others. He is a skateboarder, a musician, an artist in his own right, a publisher, a filmmaker and an independent curator (Rose also co-curating the MOCA’s Art In The Streets exhibit with Jeffrey Deitch). Rose’s Fire Sale collection of castaways clearly had the potential of being deemed treasures by those lined up along Fairfax Avenue.
