Call for Entries

Background: AID Upstate is a non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention, care, and treatment of HIV. For more than three decades, AID Upstate has served Greenville, Anderson, Pickens and Oconee Counties in South Carolina. This year, for the first time, AID Upstate is proud to offer artists the opportunity to participate in its World AIDS Day event through the exhibition and sale of their work. Proceeds from the sale will benefit the work of AID Upstate to provide client care and services. Artists are encouraged to allow the theme of World AIDS day and the topic of HIV/AIDS to inspire their work. Thematically, the only requirement is the inclusion of the color RED somewhere in the work.
