glyph 330: creativity vs. illness ... encouragement, support, career development ... community ... social entrepreneurship ... san francisco, california
The mission of Visual Aid is to encourage artists with life-threatening illnesses to continue their creative work.
Visual Aid helps produce, present, and preserve the work of professional artists whose careers are challenged because of a life-threatening illness. We serve professional artists from the nine-county Bay Area, providing artists with direct services from art supplies to exhibitions and career development.
Now (2006) in its 15th year, Visual Aid serves 65 visual artists whose works range from conceptual art installations, photography and digital imagery, and painting to bronze sculpture.
