From Keith Clark of ArtsUnited:
The Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center will host the “Ribbons for the Children” art exhibit opening reception and auction on December 6th, 2008 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale. “Ribbons for the Children” is an ArtsUnited benefit for the Center’s programs serving Children and Families with HIV/AIDS. Twenty five ArtsUnited artists created original art pieces using the AIDS Ribbon as their subject, and then donated the artwork to the Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center.
The twenty five unique art works will be on display for the first time in this exhibit at the Museum. Each will be auctioned during the reception. With the help of Dennis Dean Images, each art piece has been digitally photographed, and the images have been reproduced on note cards and prints Sets of the twenty five distinct cards will also be available for purchase during the reception. The Exhibit and Reception are sponsored by Cordis and the South Florida Blade. All the proceeds from the event will go to support the Comprehensive Family AIDS Program of the Center.
Children’s Diagnostic & Treatment Center is a nationally recognized “Center of Excellence” offering family-centered, culturally sensitive medical care and social services in Broward County, Florida. The museum is located at One Las Olas Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale. Suggested donation for the Ribbons event is twenty five dollars. For more information or to RSVP, please call 954-728-1088.
