NEW YORK — Housing Works is New York City’s largest community-based nonprofit AIDS organization. Housing Works’ thrift shops and auction sales proceeds benefit Housing Works’ lifesaving services for homeless and low-income New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS, providing necessities such as housing, meals and medical care.
The organization received an anonymous donation of 13 paintings from the estate of the New York City painter and environmental artist Geri Taper (1929-2004). Taper has been included in several shows at MOMA, which has her works in its permanent collection. She’s been exhibited worldwide at the Palais des Congres in Paris, the Carnegie Museum of Art, Madden Galleries in London and the Masavi Gallery in Japan.
Housing Works will be auctioning off all of the donated Taper creations through their window auctions. The Tapers will be displayed in the windows of their 23rd Street Gramercy thrift shop — people can bid on the items through their online store, www.ShopHousingWorks.com beginning Thursday, April 15. The auction will run through April 28 and all of the proceeds will benefit homeless and low-income New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDs.
