art For Life 2016
The Pizzuti Collection is proud to host a series of exhibitions featuring selections of artwork donated in support of the Art for Life biennial art auction. The preview exhibitions will be on view throughout the months of July and August with inaugurations coinciding with each month’s Gallery Hop in Columbus’ Short North Arts District. The works were featured in the Art for Life 2016 event, which took place at the newly opened Margaret M. Walter Wing of the Columbus Museum of Art on September 24.
Organized around themes of landscapes, portraits, abstraction, and still life, the preview exhibitions include over seventy works that run the gamut from large-scale abstract paintings to photographs, watercolors, and dramatic sculptural design by local and national artists.
Earlier in the year, Equitas Health, the Pizzuti Collection, and the Columbus Museum of Art announced a new partnership for Art for Life 2016 to help raise the profile of the event and the visibility of the artists that participate in this unique charity auction.
Art for Life is a biennial art auction that has historically helped raise awareness and funding for HIV/AIDS medical care, prevention, education, testing, and advocacy services. Since its inception, Art for Life has become the most successful art auction fundraiser in Ohio; the 2014 event raised more than $500,000.
