Angel Art, Los Angeles’ premier charitable contemporary art auction, returns to Hollywood on Saturday, June 10, 2017 at NeueHouse Hollywood, 6121 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, 90028. Now in its 21st year, Angel Art has raised over $10 million for Project Angel Food, helping to provide millions of meals for thousands of men, women and children facing life threatening illnesses.
Since the first Angel Art in 1990, internationally known artists including, David Hockney, Sage Vaughn, Catherine Opie, Mark Bradford, Jeff Koons, Ed Ruscha and John Baldessari have created and presented works, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting Project Angel Food’s meal program. “We are honored by the generosity and creativity of this esteemed family of Angel Artists,” stated Michael Maloney, event chair. “Time and again, these amazing individuals have stepped up and contributed works from the heart to help Project Angel Food.” In light of the changing health care system and challenging national climate, Project Angel Food is increasing awareness that “food & love as medicine” is needed now, more than ever.
