Nearly 1,000 art lovers will gather in the former home of the Cleveland Play House on Saturday, April 5th for ArtCares 2014, the annual auction and party to benefit the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland. ArtCares 2014 is being presented through the generosity of AIDS Healthcare Foundation and Toby Devan Lewis with support from Consolidated Graphics Group.

ArtCares is the signature fund-raiser for the AIDS Taskforce, which serves individuals and families infected, affected and at-risk for HIV/AIDS. Proceeds help provide services such as counseling and case management, educational programs for adults and youth at risk, housing, public policy and advocacy and a food pantry that provides much-needed help for a community in which illness often coincides with poverty.

This year, the AIDS Taskforce will present their ArtCares Icon award to four women who have been unwavering and generous supporters of ArtCares and the AIDS Taskforce: Representative Nickie Antonio, Dr. Kristin Englund, Helen Forbes Fields, and Beth Zone.

The centerpiece of ArtCares remains the auction of art generously donated by professional artists living in, or with connections to, Northeast Ohio, as well as artwork from students and faculty of the Cleveland Institute of Art, one of the founding partners in establishing ArtCares.  This year will again feature local artist and curator, Kristin Rogers, as curator of the event.

This year’s party features entertainment by a fun jazz band followed by DJ Saint.

The event begins at 7:00 p.m.; tickets are $100 per person. Host Committee sponsorship and Corporate Partnerships are available. Tickets and more information are available by calling the Taskforce at 216-357-3131, extension 247, or by visiting: http://bit.ly/ArtCares2014

The AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland has moved it’s offices!

As we begin 2014, we have relocated the ATGC offices to 2829 Euclid Avenue. Our new home will continue to offer services to those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS and will soon feature additional services — most notably, a health clinic and pharmacy. As we make our transition you can reach us at our temporary phone number: (216) 357-3131. You can also email us at info@clevelandtaskforce.org.

ArtCares Jr. 2014

Announcing ArtCares Jr.

A special exhibition and auction featuring the work of young artists.

Most young people enjoy creative activities: writing, drawing and designing are ways to express who they are, how they feel, and their relationship to the world around them. Creative activities provide opportunities to examine real-life issues and problems – including HIV and AIDS and the stigma attached to it. Art is often a major way children communicate.

ArtCares Jr. is an opportunity for young artists between the ages of 3 and 14 to show off their talents and skills while offering their support for those infected, affected and at-risk for HIV/AIDS. ArtCares Jr. is being presented in conjunction with the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland’s signature fundraiser – ArtCares.

Young artists are given a blank canvas to use as they choose. Any kind of art is accepted – paintings, watercolor, pen and ink, pastel or any other medium they chose to work in. Their art will be displayed at the 78th Street Studios popular ‘Third Friday’ on Friday, February 21, 2014, at a special reception from 5-9pm. Works will be auctioned off in a silent auction to help raise funds for the AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland.  ArtCares Jr. 2014 is chaired by Christina Eagleeye-Wilson.
