Hello, friends!

ARTcetera, a biennial pop up art fair to benefit AIDS Action Committee, remains one of Boston’s best venues for art discovery. Seasoned art collectors, leading philanthropists, bright new art world stars, and community members discover fine art, connect to one another, and support the vital work of AIDS Action. By offering to donate your art in 2018, you keep AIDS Action Committee alive and vibrant.

Thank you for your interest in submitting your work to ARTcetera 2018: Discovery! This event could not exist without you.


GUIDELINES FOR ART DONATIONS

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

This submission form requires:

  • a headshot
  • a brief biography
  • an image of the artwork
  • dimensions of the artwork

Please note that the "Payment" section is for optional donations.


VALUE: 

The minimum value must be $500 and above; historically the range has been between $750 and $5,000.


DIMENSIONS:
While there is no minimum or maximum dimension for the art, please take into account that most buyers want to take their piece home with them that evening, so art should be transportable.


FRAMING:

All accepted artists are encouraged to deliver their work framed and must be wired and ready to hang. Artists may be eligible for free or discounted framing - for details, please refer to the Artist Benefits below. Special considerations may be made by contacting us at scaplan@fenwayhealth.org or 857-313-6375.


DROP-OFF:
Artists will receive instructions for drop off procedures once they are notified of acceptance. Consolidated pick-ups will be coordinated in New York City and Boston.

 

ART DONATIONS AND BENEFITS:

We hope that all artists will consider making a 100% full donation of the final selling price of art to AIDS Action Committee to help further our mission of maximizing healthier outcomes for those infected and at risk, eliminating new infections, and tackling the root causes of HIV/AIDS. However, we do offer an option of a 25% payback of the final selling price to the artist (Artists donating at 75% or 50% who benefit from complimentary framing will have their payback calculated based on art's unframed value). 

Our EARLY BIRD option for a 50% split is now closed.
