The unique event includes cocktails and dinner, live and silent auctions of world-class contemporary art, and musical entertainment. MTV Staying Alive Foundation is a grassroots HIV prevention and awareness charity that focuses on engaging, educating and empowering youth communities around the world. Dallas Contemporary is a non-collecting art museum that presents new and challenging ideas from regional, national, and international artists. As part of the programme, ten works by Michael Craig-Martin will be on display spread over ten public spaces in Dallas. 

Michael Craig-Martin, conceptual artist and painter is mostly famous for his iconic line drawings of every day objects where colour and line are key to his particular minimalist aesthetic, which has been imitated widely in the fields of art and design. Craig-Martin continues to work in various mediums, always maintaining an elegant restraint and conceptual clarity. He studied Fine Art at the Yale University School of Art and Architecture and, on completion of his studies in 1966, he moved to London where he has lived ever since. In 1980 Craig-Martin became a tutor at Goldsmiths College teaching acclaimed artists such as, Damien Hirst, Sarah Lucas and Gary Hume.
