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. There is a Live and Silent Auction which feature some of the best local and internationally recognized artists. Art for Life 2018 raised over $1,000,000 and had over 1,000 attendees, continuing its legacy as the most successful charity art auction fundraiser in Ohio.
Art for Life will return to the Columbus Museum of Art in the Margaret M. Walter Wing in September of 2020.
