VISUAL AIDS PRESENTS
THE 21ST ANNUAL POSTCARDS FROM THE EDGE BENEFIT
FRIDAY, FEB. 22 – SUNDAY, FEB. 24, 2019 AT BORTOLAMI IN TRIBECA
New York, October 24, 2018 – Visual AIDS is pleased to announce the 21st edition of Postcards from the Edge, the organization’s first annual benefit event of the year for 2019. Widely known as one of Visual AIDS’ most exciting benefits, Postcards from the Edge provides an opportunity for the public to purchase original pieces of postcard-sized artwork by both established and emerging artists for only $85 each. The 21st annual sale will be held from February 22nd to 24th, 2019 at host gallery Bortolami, located on 39 Walker Street in Tribeca, New York City.
2019 will mark the 21st year of Visual AIDS’ Postcards from the Edge benefit, and the impressive 21-year run of this event is a testament to its effectiveness as a fundraising tool. Visual AIDS first held Postcards from the Edge in 1998 and has since raised about $800,000 via this annual fundraiser. Since the event’s conception, over 20,000 postcard-sized works have been donated by artists from around the world. By participating in Postcards from the Edge, artists and collectors support the mission of Visual AIDS, enabling the organization to produce contemporary art programs that promote AIDS awareness and support artists living with HIV.
Visual AIDS utilizes art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists, and preserving a legacy, because AIDS is not over.
