Travel with the Snite Museum of Art to view Art AIDS America at the Alphawood Gallery in Chicago. This groundbreaking exhibition underscores the deep and unforgettable presence of HIV in American art. It introduces and explores the whole spectrum of artistic responses to AIDS, from the politically outspoken to the quietly mournful, surveying works from the early 1980s to the present.
A chartered bus will depart the Morris Inn at 10:00 a.m. with an expected return time of 5:00 p.m. The trip is free to all participants; admission to the exhibition is free, and transportation and lunch are sponsored by the Snite Museum of Art. Participation is open to everyone in the Notre Dame community.
Art AIDS America was organized by Tacoma Art Museum in partnership with The Bronx Museum of the Arts. The exhibition is co-curated by Jonathan David Katz, Director, Visual Studies Doctoral Program at the University at Buffalo (The State University of New York), and Rock Hushka, Chief Curator and Curator of Contemporary and Northwest Art at Tacoma Art Museum. The national tour is supported by the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art and Gilead Sciences, Inc. The exhibition and catalogue have been made possible by support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and The Paul G. Allen Family Foundation.
