Movie producer’s artwork being sold to benefit Kimball Art Center

First Published      Last Updated Apr 10 2014 02:14 pm

A lot of high-quality art — and some Hollywood glamour — is going on sale in Park City this weekend.

The art is from the estate of Jake Eberts, the movie producer whose credits include "Gandhi," "Chariots of Fire," "Dances With Wolves" and "A River Runs Through It." Eberts died in 2012.

Eberts and his family collected art for years, some of it in their house at the Sundance resort (which the family sold this year). They also fell in love with Utah, through Eberts' connection with Robert Redford (made while making "A River Runs Through It") and his work on the board of Redford's Sundance Institute.

Eberts' family is allowing some of the family art collection to be sold off, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to two Park City charities: Kimball Art Center and the domestic-violence shelter Peace House.

The art includes work by: Tom Mangelsen, Linda Tay'nahza, Alice McCallum, Sandra Cooney, David Shultz, September Vhay, Libby Blake, Olivia Pendergast, David Rothermel and Sibylle Szaggers-Redford.

The sale takes place Friday and Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., at 628 Park Ave., Park City — across the street from the Kimball Art Center.
