Art for AIDS Submission Guidelines

Listed below are the guidelines for submitting artwork to the Alliance Health Project’s annual fundraiser Art for AIDS. To ensure you successfully submit your artwork for evaluation, please read this information carefully.

  • Submissions may not be reproductions or photographs of work originally created and sold in another medium.
  • Total square inches should not exceed 40x40 (while we don't have walls, we will likely be shipping the art).
  • Each piece must have a minimum retail value of $500. Art valued at or above $5,000 must be independently appraised and documentation provided.
  • Once the jury has met, we will contact you about delivering your piece to us. 
  • The Art for AIDS jury reserves the right to determine the opening bid unless notified otherwise by the artist or donor.

After the event, donors will receive the contact information provided by the winning bidder and the selling price.

If you are not located in the Bay Area, please contact [email protected] for additional assistance.

Note: Art for AIDS is a juried auction benefiting the UCSF Alliance Health Project (Tax ID Number: 94-603649).

Submissions have closed for 2020! Jury Sessions are now in process and all donors will be contacted with results in the next couple weeks.

Step Three: Deliver your submission to the Alliance Health Project's Administration Office

After completing the online submission form, you will receive an email summarizing the information provided as well as a “Submission Receipt.” Attach a printed copy of the receipt to the back of the artwork and deliver to:
