Art for Life
On October 23, Art for Life, the longest running special event benefiting Equitas Health, was held at the Columbus Museum of Art. The biennial art auction was chaired by Matt & Meara Scantland and Pete & Michelle Scantland with the help of Robert Copeland, Interim CEO of Equitas Health. Over the past 3 decades, Art for Life has raised millions of dollars, continuing its legacy as the most successful charity art auction fundraiser in Ohio. All proceeds benefit Equitas Health’s mission to provide healthcare, programs, and services to thousands of people affected by HIV/AIDS, the LGBTQ+ community, and anyone seeking welcoming and inclusive care. The 2021 event shattered the record for total funds raised, set a new record for corporate and individual sponsorship, and featured incredible artists including Aminah Robinson, Adam Brouillette, James Bartolacci, Gavin Benjamin, Joey Monsoon, DonCee Coulter, Michael Guinane, Barb Vogel, and Keith Haring. The Presenting Sponsors were CoverMyMeds and Orange Barrel Media, with Diamond Sponsors including Tom W. Davis, Matt & Meara Scantland, Scott Owens & Kevin Kowalski, Jeff Chaddock & Mark Morrow, Shannon & Rob Crane, George Kontogiannis, Katie Wolfe Lloyd & Clark Lloyd.
