Art for the Cash Poor

Thank You Our 2017 Participants and Audience

Based on the premise that everyone can be an art collector, AftCP is one of the longest running art festivals in the Kensington/Fishtown area. The best part: all works, by both emerging and established artists alike, are priced at $199 and under.  

 

The Kickoff Party

Friday night’s ticketed Kickoff Party serves as a meet-and-greet with the artists and a fundraiser for AIDS Fund, which supports HIV/AIDS education, prevention, and services in the Philadelphia area. Each year the Kickoff Party offers guests an exclusive sneak-peek at the festivities to follow. Attendees at the kickoff event are given the opportunity to purchase work from a selection of the participating artists while enjoying food and light entertainment.

Heshie Zinman was InLiquid’s featured AftCP 2017 Honoree. He is the founder of the LGBT Elder Initiative (LGBTEI), a volunteer-driven, grassroots organization dedicated to building bridges between the aging services network and LGBT older adults. They focus on improving awareness of, and access to, the services offered by the aging services network and those available within LGBT communities. In the ’80s, he also co-founded the AIDS Library of Philadelphia, where he was the executive director for 13 years. Zinman also played an integral part in the start-up of Action AIDS (now Action Wellness), AIDS Fund, SafeGuards Gay Men’s Health Project and Delaware Valley Legacy Fund.

Proceeds from the Art for the Cash Poor 2017 Kickoff are split 50/50 with the AIDS Fund. Find out more about our partner at aidsfundphilly.org.
