imageA few nips and a couple of tucks and Positive Impact’s charity event for art lovers, ARTVision, unfolded again to raise thousands for the HIV agency.

ARTVision 6, the creation of photographer and artist Will Pollock, shifted to a single night – World AIDS Day on Dec. 1 – and moved to the Rush Center to display scores of pieces of art up for grabs. The proceeds benefit Positive Impact.

The event last week was well on its way to raising thousands — a partial tally on the event website reached more than $3,000. Last year, the event raised nearly $10,000. In 2009, ARTVision’s tally hit $7,200 and more than doubled the $3,000 total from a year earlier. Sales continue through the end of December.
