Geri Taper IMG_7444.JPGNEW 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.

Geri Taper IMG_7451.JPGThe 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.
