Over 350 people gathered to celebrate the inaugural Art for Life Chicago benefit. The event, which raised over $75,000, is a juried art exhibition and live and silent auction whose raised funds benefit those living with and vulnerable to HIV/AIDS. The auction included work from famous professional artists to new and emerging artists, and was selected by a jury of renowned art experts, including New York Magazine’s Senior Art Critic Jerry Saltz.
