The Art for Vaccines campaign builds on CARE’s legacy of collaborating with artists and collectors to save lives, defeat poverty, and achieve social justice. Art both shines a light on inequality and urges us to take action. CARE has partnered with a number of artists throughout our history, including Roy Lichtenstein, Ed Ruscha, Maurice Sendak, Jim Dine, and the estate of Pablo Picasso.
CARE is inviting artists and collectors to join together with Dorothy Lichtenstein, who has generously donated her husband’s original CARE collage (pictured above), to support CARE in meeting the greatest challenge of our time: the COVID-19 pandemic. Mrs. Lichtenstein hopes her gift will inspire other collectors and artists to also support CARE.
“Working with CARE was an obvious choice.”
– Claude Picasso, son of Pablo Picasso
The centerpiece of the Art for Vaccines campaign will be the sale of the original Lichtenstein Collage on May 13th at Christie’s Post-War and Contemporary Auction during the day sale. CARE is calling on collectors to bid on this unique piece and support CARE’s urgent COVID-19 vaccine efforts.
Lichtenstein created the CARE Collage in 1993 to support the World Hunger Campaign. Today we know that no one is safe, until everyone is safe.
