I’m pleased to announce that my artwork has been selected for this year’s Art for Life benefit. It will be exhibited at the prestigious Pizzuti Collection Museum  August 6 – September 3, 2016, before landing at the Columbus Museum Of Art where it will be auctioned off in support of two worthy causes on September 24.

Every 2 years Equitas Health (formally ARC Ohio) mounts a dazzling gala and auction that raises funds  for HIV/AIDS research and advocacy services (among many other things). In what will certainly become a spectacular partnership, they have joined forces with one of my favorite contemporary art collections/nonprofits, the Pizzuti Collection. Together they will present the 2016 Art for Life event and fund ventures that will support both AIDS research and children’s arts education. I’ve donated to this cause in the past, but I’m especially excited for this newly struck partnership and the added benefits it provides.


My work will be on view at:
1ST Floor
632 N Park St
Columbus, OH 43215

The 2016 Art for Life event will take place September 24, 2016 at the newly opened Margaret M. Walter Wing of the Columbus Museum of Art. This will be the inaugural Art for Life event in the 50,000-square-foot modern art annex and “will feature important new work from artists from Ohio and around the country, as well provide access to regional and national art collectors.”
