The seventh annual ARTDOCS benefit art auction features works by more than 70 artists, including several current Prospect.2 participants (Gina Phillips, Srdjan Loncar, Dan Tague and Dawn Dedeaux). Other artists providing pieces include Jaqueline Bishop, Sandy Chism, Skylar Fein, James Michalopoulas, Blake Boyd, Justin Forbes, Krista Jurisich and many others. The event also features entertainment by the Panorama Jazz Band, aerialists and others, and there's food and drinks. ARTDOCS works with Sisters of Charity and other community partners to provide medical care for artists, musicians and writers who do not have health insurance or the means to afford basic health care services, says co-founder Jonathan Ferrara (pictured left). Since 1999, the program has provided more than 4,000 patient visits. For more information about the program or art in the auction, visit Tickets $15 for individuals, $25 for couples. — Will Coviello
