The art work depicted here, Crucifixion 2050, was taken at the close of a show in Napa. The person who took it claims he did so by mistake and then gave it to a friend because the friend “really liked it.” The friend admits he had it at one time but claims he not longer has it. Present whereabouts: Unknown.

It is a wall-mounted piece measuring about 20″ high including the cross. The figure is formed from a heated and manipulated plastic and metal robot toy called a Transformer. The cross is charred wood. The figure and the cross may have been separated.

Because stolen art has a way of traveling rather than remaining in the location near where it was taken, I am seeking your help in locating it. A reward is offered for information leading to its return. Please email me if you have any leads.

Thank you,

Mike Wittels
