PALM SPRINGS, CA, June 17, 2014 – When Steve Chase was honored by Desert AIDS Project at “A Valentine’s Gala” in 1993, along with former first ladyBetty Ford and McDonald’s heiress Joan Kroc, the program for the evening noted:
Steve’s intense interest in art has generated a significant collection of contemporary art, displayed in his private residences and Rancho Mirage office. While his collection contains museum quality works, he constantly acknowledges and seeks out work by young and upcoming artists. He is a supporter of art scholarships … and major contributions from his collection have been made to the Desert Museum in Palm Springs.
When the award-winning interior designer created his own 7,000-square-foot home in the desert, Chase made sure the living room was large enough to display his 17-foot-wide painting by Helen Frankenthaler, along with other massive works of modern art. Chase designed interiors and helped choose artwork for homes around the world of celebrity clients like Dyan Cannon, Farrah Fawcett, Gene Hackman, Johnny Mathis, and a variety of others. Right here in the Coachella Valley, clients like Helene Galen not only counted Chase as the talented professional who designed her home’s interiors but also as a friend.
Involved with Desert AIDS Project from its earliest days, Chase was a long-time volunteer, donor, and board member. He knew that one of his clients had already made gifts totaling more than $5 million to support AIDS research and provide care through her Joan B. Kroc Foundation. Working closely with Mrs. Kroc, Chase helped make possible her major gift that created the first medical clinic at Desert AIDS Project.
Following his death in 1994, many in the community rallied together the very next year to create the First Annual Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards gala, to benefit D.A.P. Twenty years later, the event has grown to become one of the highlights of the Palm Springs social season. Honoring major HIV/AIDS activists from science and medicine, as well as stars of stage and screen, “the Steve Chase” attracts 1500 or more attendees from across the country and has grossed well over $1 million for the last several years.
Now, Chase is helping to contribute to D.A.P. once again through the Steve Chase Associates Art Collection. Gil Rose, a long-time member of D.A.P.’s Partners for Life annual giving program, along withStan Russell. Rose, who is also D.A.P.’s Volunteer Curator of Art & Collectibles, said “This is everyone’s opportunity to purchase artwork from the D.A.P. Archival Collection, including the Chase Collection and works from a variety of other artists.”
Dimitri Halkidis, who regularly offers his talents as a photographer on a pro bono basis, has made his Gallery 446, at 446 S. Indian Canyon Way, available for showing this art collection. Following an opening reception on July 5, the collection will be on display until August 31.

A Message from the curator:
This show the Fifth Element has me more excited than I had ever really expected it to be! As a long time patron of the arts, the one area that has eluded me somewhat was street art.
About 8 years ago I went to the opening show that Moca put on where they were featuring Basquiat's work. While I found it fascinating, some how I think because he had such influence from Andy Warhol the work almost felt familiar. I also went to exhibits at the Geffen as well as several other exhibits but I always walked away with the feeling that there needed to be more..... Well now there is!
It's a WOW.... Powerful, beautiful, impactful, thought provoking and connected is what I would now say about Street Art. These amazing artists are definitely part of the development of this relatively new movement in art! It completely feels like art in a way that not only an experience or even critical eye can see but someone who has never been to a museum or gallery before will more likely feel something! These are burgeoning masters in a new genre for the art world and experiencing this show will allow you the opportunity to be part of a piece of history!

A Message from the curator:
have always loved photography as an artistic way to
capture moments or even seconds in time. The skilled
eye of a photographer’s work is really quite special; it
allows the viewers a glimpse into something they would
never see or experience otherwise.
I personally find both traditional, -- old school photography
as well as newer digitally
enhanced or manipulated work very interesting. In old
school photographs we see literal, real, images that rely
on the skillful eye and timing of the photographer. By contrast,
modern inhanced or manipulated work with color or dropped
in images from other sources rely on artistic talent and vision
to communicate to the viewer. This creates another form of
expression beyond what was captured initially.
In this show Exposed... A Photographic Journey, I wanted
to introduce a group of photographers that work in a variety
of styles and expose the artistic diversity that can
exist within the photography genre. Here each artist
represents a different realm within the same medium.
Take a close up look and you will see what they saw!
