Creating is Giving...Cheers from Visual AIDS
Season's Greetings from Visual AIDS. 2011 has been a tremendous year for Visual AIDS. One in which we considered the role of creating as we observed the 30 years of HIV. As the only contemporary arts organization fully committed to HIV prevention and AIDS awareness through producing and presenting visual art projects, while assisting artists living with HIV/AIDS, here are some idea of what creating means to us.
Creating is Connecting: For our Day With(Out) Art, we collaborated with over 65 screening partners nationwide to present UNTITLED, a film by Jim Hodges, Encke King, and Carlos Marques da Cruz.
Creating is Inspiring: Our exhibition entitled, MIXED MESSAGES, curated by John Chaich at La Mama La Galleria, received engaging reviews from ArtForum.com and The New York Times.
Creating is Honoring: Marking the 20th anniversary of the Red Ribbon, an essay by Visual AIDS Executive Director, Amy Sadao was featured on CNN.com.
Creating is Giving: Help Visual AIDS keep the creating going. By making the largest gift you can this season, you are helping guarantee that more art is created, experienced, and discussed to help in the fight against AIDS.
Thank you for considering Visual AIDS in your year-end giving, your giving directly impacts the creating process.
