October 21 marked a monumental day in the fictitious world of Back to the Future, a date that millions of fans of the trilogy had been anticipating for decades. When Dr. Emmet Brown tells Marty McFly, “Something’s gotta be done about your kids” at the conclusion of the first film, the duo jumps in the unforgettable DeLorean time machine and head to October 21, 2015 to keep Marty’s kids out of trouble. In Back to the Future Part II, Marty is introduced to a futuristic world filled with flying cars, hoverboards and automatic lacing sneakers.
To celebrate the arrival of Marty McFly, the mega popular sneaker blog Nice Kicks, in collaboration with Hennessy V.S and Shoe Palace, hosted the OUTATIME: Charity Art Auction Benefiting The Michael J. Fox Foundation at a private art gallery and pop up shop at the heart of Los Angeles, CA. Over 40 artists created tributes to the characters, moments and spirit of the Back to the Future franchise for the event. The list of talented artists donating pieces included the iconic street artist and graphic designer Shepard Fairey, the gifted 9-year-old portraitist Yung Lenox along with his father Skip Class, and many more. Individuals from around the world bid on the art pieces from home using eBay. All proceeds generated from the auction will be donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation to assist in the continual efforts to find a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
