A Stellar Party at Eleven

Team Easton, the cast of the Bold and the Beautiful, Tori Spelling, that shrill chick from So You Think You Can Dance, and Lance Bass rocked Eleven last night, at the fundraiser for AIDS Lifecycle, and they raised over $60,000 besides.

Tori, with child, embodied grace under pressure with her support at the event, chatting, announcing, raffling stuff off, and showing the love. The lady is a champ. Continue reading ‘A Stellar Party at Eleven’

Make Art Stop AIDS

medicine-man-rgb-low-res.jpgA shout out to Jason for putting the Goldstein Kapellas installation “Medicine Man” on my radar, and hopefully on your So Cal calendar. The new work is shaped like a human figure and is made of over 300 suspended HIV/AIDS medication bottles. It hovers at the center of six halos made of syringes.

Make Art/Stop AIDS is an international traveling exhibition of art dealing with the pandemic of HIV/AIDS opening at the Fowler Museum in Los Angeles February 23rd, and running through June 15th before taking off for Mexico City and then Brazil, South Africa and finally India.

Also on exhibit will be one of Daniel Goldstein’s “Icarian Series” leather peices on loan to the museum from the private collection of actor Richard Gere.

The image of “Medicine Man” (above left) will be the official banner for the show and on display through downtown Los Angeles.

For more information, call 415.621.5761, visit goldsteinkapellas.com, or email Jason Lahman. See you at the show.

It’s World AIDS Day, Brah!

It’s World AIDS Day.

I’m sad to have lost so many loved ones, but I’m grateful for having known them at all.

I’m sad that there isn’t enough treatment for everyone who suffers, but I’m grateful that there is any treatment at all.

I’m sad about the worldwide tragedy that has come of the spreading of some damned, stubborn virus, stealing millions of lives, but I’m grateful that we know more about how to treat it today than we did yesterday. Tomorrow we’ll know even more.

I’m sad that it’s not just Saturday, but I’m grateful that it is World AIDS Day, and by the end of the day more people will be thinking about AIDS and what they can do to help those in need. And even more still, next year.

I’m grateful that someday soon it will just be Saturday again.
