Fans can welcome the return of “Mad Men” to AMC this month with a one-of-a-kind, cast member-signed work of art
San Rafael, CA – A love of bikes, art and the hit TV series, Mad Men, has inspired the sale of a truly unique work of art by renowned license plate artist and former HGTV’s FreeStyle host Aaron Foster. Proceeds from an online art auction will be donated to the national nonprofit organization, Trips for Kids.
“The bicycle has always been a huge part of my life. When you’re a kid, the bicycle is freedom – it makes your world bigger and provides a certain level of independence,” Foster said. “I’m a big fan of kids on bikes. I’m a big fan of Mad Men. And I’ve been making license plate art for more than ten years now, so why not combine all three to raise some money for a great cause?”
The one-of-a-kind piece is a replica of the television show’s logo made entirely of vintage recycled license plates. The piece is signed by the entire cast and Show Creator Matthew Weiner.
Beginning March 22, Foster will auction the piece to raise money to support Trips for Kids, a national organization that inspires youth outdoors on mountain bikes. The auction will run during the season premiere on March 25 through April 1, closing at 8:45 pm (EST), just 15 minutes prior to the second episode of season five on AMC.
