An American finds thousands of dollars worth of artwork in the trash What's the story? An American mechanic found paintings and artwork buried under the dirt in an abandoned barn. It later turned out to be a collection of works by the late artist Francis Haynes. The works were displayed in many exhibitions, some of which were sold for thousands of dollars.  A cache of paintings and other artworks was found in an abandoned barn that eventually turned out to be a real treasure worth millions of dollars.  Jared Whipple, an auto mechanic in Waterbury, Connecticut, has been advised by a contractor to take back parts covered in dirt since 2017, from a trash can containing materials from a Watertown barn.  Hearst Connecticut media group reported that Whipple later discovered that the paintings and works were by Francis Haynes, an abstract expressionist painter who died in 2016 at the age of 96 and kept his works stored in the barn.  Heinz is best known for his "wrapping" work, in which he wraps cloth around an object.  His paintings and artwork have been compared to the art of Christo and Jean-Claude, who were famous for their artwork packaging throughout Europe, including the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.  In this context, art coordinator and historian Peter Hastings Falk told the Hearst Connecticut media group that Heinz has enveloped more than a dozen buildings in New York, including the Washington Square Arch monument and JFK Airport. And Port Authority Bus Station.  Hundreds of pieces of art recovered by Whipple include paintings, sculptures, and small drawings.  Hastings Folk said that "wrapped" paintings could sell for twenty-two thousand dollars each, and each of his paintings could sell for four thousand five hundred dollars.   Whipple showed some art at an exhibition in Waterbury last year, and recently decided to sell some of the art.  Currently, Whipple is collaborating with the Hollis Taggart Gallery in New York City, to organize exhibitions in New York and Connecticut starting next month.  Since the treasure was found, Whipple has researched Heinz's work and contacted the late artist's family, who he said allowed him to keep and sell the artwork.  "I pulled her out of that trash can, I fell in love with her, I hooked up with her, and I want Heinz to enter the history books," Whipple told the news site.
