Postcards From the Edge is a Visual AIDS benefit show and sale of original, postcard-sized artworks by established and emerging artists. All artwork is exhibited anonymously. While buyers receive a list of all participating artists, they don't know who created which piece until after purchased. With the playing field leveled, all participants can take home a piece by a famous artist, or someone who is just making their debut. Nonetheless, collectors walk away with a piece of art they love, knowing that the money raised will support HIV prevention and AIDS Awareness.
Past Postcards From the Edge Participants: John Baldessari, Yoko Ono, Jeff Koons, Barbara Kruger, Sol LeWitt, Glenn Ligon, Kara Walker, Bill Viola, Ann Hamilton, Catherine Opie, Kiki Smith, Ross Bleckner, Vik Muniz, Marilyn Minter, Elizabeth Murray, Ed Ruscha, Nancy Spero, Cindy Sherman, Jim Hodges, John Waters, Louise Bourgeois, and more….
Visual AIDS utilizes art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists, and preserving a legacy, because AIDS is not over. It is the only contemporary arts organization fully committed to HIV prevention and AIDS awareness through producing and presenting visual art projects, while assisting artists living with HIV/AIDS. http://www.visualaids.org/
