Curry Student Artwork Exhibited at New York City Gallery for HIV/AIDS Fundraising Event
January 11, 2012
The Curry College Fine and Applied Arts Senior Seminar class, led by Professor Laurie Alpert, took part in the 2012 "Postcards from the Edge" campaign, a fundraiser for Visual AIDS, an organization which produces art in order to raise funds and awareness of HIV/AIDS and how it is affecting the contemporary art world.
These creative students each created a 6" x 9" piece of original art in the medium of their choice. The "postcards" were exhibited in January 2012 at Cheim & Read, a gallery in New York City. Each piece was signed by the artist on the back and everything was sold anonymously for the price of $85.
Participating artists have included: Vito Acconci, John Baldessari, Karen Finley, Cindy Sherman, Kara Walker, John Waters and Tom Wesselman.
Several Curry College students contributed artwork, including:
