Viretta Park Cobain memorial up for auction
You could own a part of Kurt Cobain memorabilia.
Not something from his life, but items left from fans after his death.
2 benches from Viretta Park in Seattle have served as an unofficial memorial to the singer and the messages left by his fans are up for auction. These benches have sat in the park near the home where Cobain was found dead on April 8, 1994.
In 2008, the wood was removed from the benches, covered in notes, carvings, and stickers from around the world. The wood was saved and rebuilt on similar benches and now is for sale. The benches that still sit in the park have had new wood installed.
Hamilton’s Antique & Estate Auctions of Tacoma have put this wood up for auction at Proxibid.com.
The auction ends Tuesday night at 6pm.
