Damien Hirst Donates Sketches to Charitable Cause
Damien Hirst has donated three sketches to the Buy Art Fair in order to raise money for charity. Proceeds will go to the Five Stars Scanner Appeal in order to help raise £1m for an MRI scanner for the new Manchester Children’s Hospital. The three sketches-- a butterfly, shark, and skull, are worth an estimated £2,000 each. The MRI scanner will help doctors to diagnose cancer in young patients.
