More than twenty-five years ago, a group of Boston-area artists came together in response to the AIDS crisis, which was claiming the lives of so many of their friends, fellow artists, and colleagues. They created and organized the first ARTcetera, a contemporary art auction held at Boston City Hall, to raise money for AIDS Action. Over the years, ARTcetera has grown to become one of New England’s premier art auctions and an essential funding source for AIDS Action.
ARTcetera 2018 raised almost $350,000, welcomed 425 attendees, and featured over 220 contemporary art pieces from artists including Bill Thompson, Kate Hush, Juan Travieso, and Salvador Dali. We are so grateful to Presenting sponsor Fidelity Investments. Thank you to Rafanelli Events, the Catered Affair, Urbanity Dance, and DJ Dayglow for creating ARTcetera magic! AIDS Action couldn’t be more appreciative for the support of the artists, donors, and attendees whose generosity makes it possible for all funds raised at ARTcetera to go directly to changing lives.
