Heartworks for Mazzoni Center’s AIDS work


Heartworks, the big fundraiser for the Mazzoni Center and its work helping people with AIDS, is just a heartbeat away. The thing includes a number of events, including a huge exhibit of about 70 artists and an auction of their artwork.

But the place to see and be seen, the hot ticket for my money, is the kick-off event, featuring Brooklyn indie-rock band Gang Gang Dance, tomorrow at Johnny Brenda’s. More info on that here. I’m sorry I’m going to miss this (I have a house full of guests and no can do; I do think Roberta is planning to go).

The show, which is at the Crane, includes artists–local and national! Check out the list:

There’s a nice story in today’s Inquirer featuring exhibit curator Chris Veit, who we met at the preview party. He is an irrepressible character, and he has poured his heart into this. The article also includes several images of work in the show and auction.
