Come out and support your local artists!

For over ten years, ARTDOCS has provided medical care to visual artists, writers and perfomring artists in New Orleans who lack health coverage. Since 1999, ARTDOCS has seen over 2500 artist patients providing routine care and other important medical services.

On Thursday, November 19th they will be holding a live auction at 851 Magazine Street. There will be music, art, fire-eaters, circus performers, and The Big Easy Rollergirls.

DJ Soul Sister starts at 6:30 PM.
The auction starts at 7:30 PM.
Tickets are available at the door: $15 individuals/$25 couples.

ARTDOCS provides healthcare services to full-time artists in the New Orleans area who are uninsured or under-insured and whose income falls below 2 times the 2009 federal poverty level of $10,830. This means any uninsured artist in New Orleans currently making under $21,660 now qualifies for the program.

ARTDOCS will cover the costs of office visits with a family physician, including associated lab fees.
