â€" Last year the Goss-Michael Foundation inaugurated a wonderful tradition in the form of its multi-part RE:DEFINE event, and I could not be more thrilled that they’re bringing the event back for another year.

Mark your calendars for September 13 through 21, and head out to the Goss-Michael Foundation’s Design District gallery for an art exhibit and auction benefitting a great cause.

RE:DEFINE was founded in 2011 to mark the 30th anniversary of AIDS and, in its the inaugural year, raised over $700,000 for MTV’s Staying Alive Foundation. The foundation, launched in 2004, exists to support youth-led initiatives committed to stopping the spread of HIV in local communities. To date, the foundation has awarded 304 grants, distributing over $3 million.

The Goss-Michael Foundation will serve as the exhibition host for the event and will be curated by a group known as The Future Tense, that maintains its mission is to re-invent the traditional art gallery experience and support the careers of emerging artists via its exhibits and events.

Last year, the RE:DEFINE event exhibited and sold original works of art from the likes of Damien Hirst, Shephard Fairey, and Tracey Emin, to name a few. This year promises an equally impressive line-up of talented artists, with many such as Michael Craig-Martin, Ryan McGinness, and Chuck Elliot already confirmed to produce original art for the event.

In order to draw the general public out to the free exhibit during its week-long run, the Goss-Michael Foundation is committed to hosting tours and artist talks that will be open to everyone in the lead-up to the official VIP gala and auction on September 22.

This is also the date when the money will be raised as VIP’s purchase tickets to what promises to be a beautiful night of art and music, culminating in the silent auction which will feature exclusive luxury packages in addition to the art.

Even if you can’t support the event monetarily, make sure to at least head out to see the exhibit and support a worthy cause.

RE:DEFINE opens September 13 and is free and open to the public through September 21 at the Goss-Michael Foundation.
