Art Donations

Join this important piece in Portland history of artists banding together to fight back against HIV.

Over 30 years ago Portland artists, seeing the devastation in their community, united to fight back against the spread of HIV. They auctioned their art to raise funds to support CAP’s mission to support and empower all people with or affected by HIV, reduce stigma, and provide the LGBTQ+ community with compassionate healthcare. Since then the event has grown and evolved but their vision endures.

Please join us for Cascade AIDS Project’s Annual Art Auction.
