Any additional contributions are greatly appreciated.

One entry per artist

We hope you can be a part of Postcards From the Edge. The event's success depends on the generosity of artists like you. Last year, we set new records with over 1400 postcards submitted!  Participating artists are invited to attend the Pre-view Party, Sunday, October 16 from 6-9 PM for free.  After the benefit, Visual AIDS provides information about the collector of your work or returns unsold work. Please allow 4-6 weeks for processing.

Postcards From the Edge is a show and sale of original, postcard-sized artworks on paper by established and emerging artists. All artworks are $50 and sold on a first-come, first-served basis. The works are signed on the back and exhibited so that the artists' signatures cannot be seen. While buyers have a list of all participating artists, they don't know who created which piece until it is purchased and the signature is revealed. A collector might end up with a work by a famous artist or one they don't yet know. Either way, they walk away with a great piece of art while supporting Visual AIDS important work.

Founded in 1988 , Visual AIDS promotes AIDS awareness through the visual arts. Two Visual AIDS initiatives, the Red Ribbon and Day Without Art, have become icons of AIDS awareness.  Visual AIDS also supports artists with HIV/AIDS through direct professional services including free photo-documentation of artwork, the largest slide library of work by artists with HIV/AIDS, materials grants to those with low incomes, estate planning services, exhibition opportunities, professional development, advice and advocacy. For more information on Visual AIDS programs, please visit http://www.visualAIDS.org.

NYCLU's Guide to Stops and Searches on the MTA

The City of New York has announced that the police will randomly search bags, including backpacks and packages, brought into the mass transit system. The searches started on July 21st and will continue indefinitely.

The Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and Article I, section 12 of the New York State Constitution protect everyone against unreasonable searches of their person or possessions. The New York Civil Liberties Union opposes the random search policy as an infringement of our rights in a free society and as ineffective for security.

If you are stopped by the police, stay calm and in control. Remember, anything you say or do can be used against you. You might be arrested for provoking or bad-mouthing police, resisting physically, or running away. Use your judgment; the police might arrest you even if they are not legally justified in doing so.


Click above for what you should and shouldn't do, and for what can and can't (legally) be done to you, if stopped.
