STORIES: The AIDS Monument & Project Angel Food Live Benefit Auction 2021
PHOTO21: Hosted by Milk Studios, Los Angeles
Photo21 is a in-person and virtual Photo and Art Auction to benefit Project Angel Food and STORIES: The AIDS Monument.
Project Angel Food prepares and delivers medically-tailored meals for people living with life-threatening illnesses throughout Los Angeles County.
During the start of COVID in 2020, Project Angel Food's demand grew from preparing and delivering meals to 1,500 people per day to delivering 2,300 per day. In October last year, Project Angel Food commemorated their milestone 13 millionth meal.
Art purchased at Project Angel Food’s Angel Art and photography events have raised over $8 million since 1993, helping to provide thousands of meals to feed those impacted by serious illness to residents in Los Angeles. The artistic community has provided incredible support to Project Angel Food over the years, with some of their first fundraisers being conducted by artists and collectors.
The Foundation for the AIDS Monument is in the final planning phase and the groundbreaking has taken place at this extraordinary location on San Vicente Boulevard in West Hollywood Park. The AIDS Monument will be an important, living memorial that tells the story of the AIDS pandemic to millions of people for decades to come. Over 1,350 people have donated to this effort, and hundreds of artists have contributed over the years for the Photo events. Your purchases will enable the Foundation to fund the Digital Monument, which extends STORIES: The AIDS Monument beyond West Hollywood Park to anyone, anywhere so a global audience is better informed and educated about the AIDS pandemic. The Digital Monument will be a destination for a broad and diverse audience to both read and enjoy inspirational STORIES of love, caring and activism which heal, comfort, and educate people the world over. Extensive programming will be provided which ensures the history of those affected by the AIDS pandemic will never be forgotten. Art purchased at Photo21 will further support the mission of the organization.
Each work will ship from Los Angeles. Shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer.
