Art for Life 2012 is September 22nd - Save the Date!
Art for Life has been the most significant fundraiser for the Columbus AIDS Task Force (now known as AIDS Resource Center Ohio) since 1989 when it first began. Art for Life is a truly special evening filled with glitz, glamour, food and drink, set against the backdrop of amazing art that has been donated by local and national artists to help support AIDS Resource Center Ohio and the much needed programs and services provided for our community.
The event is the largest charity art auction in Central Ohio, is comprised of two parts—a live auction and a silent auction. Art for Life was started in 1989 by local artists/donors who believed there was a need for an event of this caliber to raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS services in our community. The first Art for Life was held August 5, 1989 at the Battleship Building in Short North with 58 artists participating and 115 pieces that were auctioned off, including famous memorabilia.
Art for Life 2012 will be held September 22, 2012 at the Columbus Museum of Art.
The Honorary Chair for the evening will be Dr. E. Gordon Gee, President of The Ohio State University.
Supporting Art for Life 2012 allows AIDS Resource Center Ohio to continue the important work of providing comprehensive care services, educational programs, and prevention to our community. 90% of funds raised go towards direct support services for those living with HIV/AIDS.
