Bringing together a creative community of artists, galleries, art donors and art patrons, sponsors and media, Art for AIDS connects the art world, a community deeply aware of the epidemic’s toll, with one of the nation’s leading AIDS prevention and care organizations.

Art for AIDS originated in 1996 when several local artists got together in a Noe Valley kitchen and decided to sell their art to help friends living with HIV/AIDS. Over the years, Art for AIDS has grown, attracting artists such as Ryan Reynolds, Deborah Oropallo, Jock Sturges, Pamela Merory Derhnam, Rex Ray and Ferris Plock, along with works from prominent Bay Area galleries and collectors.
