Columbus Gives Back is back at it again with our friends at Equitas Health for Art for Life. Art for Life is a biennial art auction, created in 1989, that has helped raise awareness and approximately $3 million in funding for HIV/AIDS medical care, prevention, education, testing and advocacy services. The event is not only a celebration of the arts community and Equitas Health’s life-saving work, but also a celebration of life and the artists who enrich it. Art for Life 2016 raised over $600,000 and had over 1,000 attendees, continuing its legacy as the most successful charity art auction fundraiser in Ohio.
What: We need volunteers to help us package the works of art purchased at Art for Life that will be delivered to their new owners on Sunday morning.
Where: Columbus Museum of Art, 480 E. Broad St. Columbus, OH 43215
When: Sunday, September 16, 9am – 12pm
