Art Against AIDS
HIV/AIDS affects over 30 million people worldwide. World AIDS day was held on December 1, 2012, and people of all colors, shapes, and sizes participated in events against the deadly disease. In 1989 “Day With(out) Art” was launched as an action against the deadly virus to prevent it, mourn for victims, and spread awareness. The “out” in the title is in parenthesis because some create art as an action on this day as well. People in homes, museums, and organizations across the United States covered up artwork in response to “Day With(out) Art”. The black cloth symbolizes how much AIDS/HIV has destroyed the arts. This day is also used to remember artist who were victims of the disease. Below are some photos from “Day With(out) Art”.
