Ducati North America has partnered with acclaimed artist Mickalene Thomas and the RxART children’s charity to auction a unique, hand-painted 2024 Scrambler Ducati Icon during the upcoming Modern and Contemporary Art program by Heritage Auctions on May 23. Proceeds will benefit the RxART children’s charity as part of a Ducati partnership with men’s clean skincare brand ATWATER.
Ducati is proud to continue its partnership with ATWATER beginning earlier this year. The first phase of the collaboration resulted in a limited-edition custom soap bar, with proceeds benefiting RxART. Now, in the second phase, RxART has commissioned celebrated artist Mickalene Thomas for the upcoming Heritage auction.
As an acclaimed artist of her generation, Mickalene Thomas is renowned for her ability to explore the intricate interplay between race, femininity and beauty through her unique artistic language. Her distinctive aesthetic and exceptional skills make her an ideal partner for the transformation of a Scrambler Ducati into a work of art. Thomas’ expertise in material and image creation imbues the Scrambler Ducati Icon with new opportunities of color, style and concepts.
The auction’s proceeds will go toward funding RxART’s installation at the newly opened SUNY upstate: Nappi Wellness Institute in Syracuse, New York. RxART’s mission is to introduce contemporary art into children’s hospital settings, creating uplifting and engaging healing environments. Ducati is honored to support these efforts in transforming the lives of those in need.
