For millions of passionate Grateful Dead fans, there is only one “Wolf”: Jerry Garcia’s beloved guitar. Customized by luthier Doug Irwin, Wolf was delivered to Jerry and first appeared in a 1973 New York City performance the Grateful Dead gave for the Hells Angels. Over the following two decades, Wolf became almost as well known as the performer himself as it appeared in countless concerts and on treasured recordings throughout Jerry’s fabled career.

Years after the musician’s passing, Wolf returned to Doug and was sold in a 2002 Guernsey’s auction conducted at NYC’s electric Studio 54, where it fetched close to $1 million, more than doubling the existing world record. Now, Wolf’s buyer, wishing to support the important efforts of the Southern Poverty Law Center and its continuing fight against racism and hate groups, has returned Wolf to Guernsey’s for an unprecedented one lot auction of this most treasured guitar. The proceeds of the winning high bid on this extraordinary instrument will go to SPLC. This Guernsey’s event, additionally supported by the Relix Group, will be held on May 31st, live at the fabulous Brooklyn Bowl in New York City. Absentee bidders will also be accommodated.

From San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom to NYC’s Palladium to Egypt’s Great Pyramids, Jerry and Wolf travelled, appearing in front of massive, passionate audiences. It is no wonder that the devoted Deadhead who purchased the Wolf in 2002 has said, “I’ve been a fan of The Dead since I was a kid, and playing this iconic guitar over the past 15 years has been a privilege. But the time is right for Wolf to do some good. My wife and I have long supported the efforts of the Southern Poverty Law Center, and if ever we needed the SPLC, we sure do need them now.”

Rarely, if ever, has there been an item as memorable and noteworthy as the Wolf being sold in support of such a worthy cause. Guernsey’s is thrilled that the return of Wolf will go a long way to combat racism and injustice across the country.

Brooklyn Bowl is proud to present on May 31st a spectacular Guernsey’s auction event, where celebrated musicians will have a chance to play Wolf one last time before it finds a new owner. Those interested in bidding on Wolf, or attending the auction and preview events should visit www.guernseys.com or contact the auction house in New York at 212-794-2280.

All Auction and Show proceeds donated to Southern Poverty Law Center.

| TIME | National Design Award for Fashion Design, 2017

SLOWAND STEADY WINS THE RACE is honored to be the 2017 recipient of the National Design Awards in Fashion Design conceived by Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum to honor lasting achievement in American design. This year also marks the fifteenth year anniversary of the inception of our studio. Over the years we have continued to refine our ten core values, investigating design through utility, integrity, simplicity, reliability, materiality, care, concept, curiosity, quality, and longevity. True design integrity is undeniable in its presence and purpose. It is what makes our foundation. Design has the power to be timely and timeless, unique and universal, ageless and cross-cultural. As a living archive and now best represented as a thesaurus of wearable design, Slow and Steady Wins the Race will continue to focus on the fundamentals of clothing and accessory design while making a commentary on the cultural anthropology of fashion, dress and function. Thank you for joining us on this journey.

About THE NATIONAL DESIGN AWARDS

The Awards are bestowed in recognition of excellence, innovation, and enhancement of the quality of life. First launched at the White House in 2000 as an official project of the White House Millennium Council, the annual Awards program celebrates design as a vital humanistic tool in shaping the world, and seeks to increase national awareness of the impact of design through education initiatives.

About SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE

New York–based designer Mary Ping founded Slow and Steady Wins the Race in 2002, following the launch of her eponymous collection in 2001. The work is a continuous investigation into the elements of what we wear, how we wear it, and why. Each collection contains a commentary on the cultural anthropology of modern fashion, focusing on the fundamental characteristics of design within a wardrobe. Ping was inducted into the CFDA in 2007, and is a winner of the Ecco Domani Award and UPS Future of Fashion. Her work is part of the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, The Museum at FIT, the RISD Museum, Deste Foundation, and the Fondation d’entreprise Galeries Lafayette.
