In an effort to prevent HIV infection, support people affected and infected with AIDS, and fight AIDS-related stigma, the Cascade AIDS Project has held an art auction each year since 1990. The auction’s reputation has grown over the years, and it now attracts a serious group of supporters from local restaurants, galleries and other businesses. It’s no exaggeration to say Portland’s finest foods will be ready for the sampling… and the visual art, I’m told, ain’t bad. It’s an honor to have a piece juried into this show and a privilege to be eating there this Saturday.
Tickets to the main event run $100 each, with proceeds going to benefit the CAP, and they’re still available. (There’s also a swank dinner with different pricing and rules.)
The piece I donated is listed here.
