Artwork Sold at Postcards from the Edge

Dear Brut,

Thank you for participating in the 18th annual Postcards from the Edge benefit for Visual AIDS, held January 29-31, 2016 at Sikkema Jenkins & Co. Your donation helped make the show and sale incredibly successful! To date, the benefit raised over $113,000, all to support the mission of Visual AIDS: utilizing art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists, and preserving a legacy — because AIDS IS NOT OVER!

The benefit included the display of every artwork submitted. 1,504 postcard-sized works by artists from all around the world were viewed by over 1,000 people.

We appreciate your ongoing support. Artists’ generosity has always enabled Visual AIDS to work between contemporary art and AIDS advocacy. With your help, this season we will provide more Material Grants to HIV-positive artists, expand our online Artist Registry, distribute new artist-designed AIDS Awareness editions, and produce more AIDS-focused exhibitions, events, and publications. If you can help Visual AIDS by making an additional contribution, please visit: you once again.

All the best,

Esther McGowan
Associate Director
