Hilary Tait Norod, a talented up and coming artist with whom I collaborate in the Webster Art Project told me about a charitable endeavor she is supporting called Art in Giving. The foundation, based in Boston’s Fort Point neighborhood, raises funds for childhood cancer research.
More than 60 artists and galleries participate in Art in Giving, donating up to 50 percent of the proceeds from the sale of art to The Rachel Molly Markoff Foundation. Its mission is dedicated to pediatric cancer research and programs to help families cope with childhood cancer.
While individuals are welcome to purchase these pieces, the organization targets art buyers, real estate developers, architects and interior designers, and others who might place art in public buildings and corporate offices. In some cases pieces hang in institutions and are still for sale. Gift certificates are also available.
Here are ten artworks from Art in Giving that I particularly love.

Diane Ayott, Primary Data
