December 1 - 29, 2018

Opening Reception December 1st. (World AIDS Day) 5-10pm

Kurt Weston, Barbara Romain, Alexandria Allan

The history of AIDS activism and the losses of the ongoing AIDS crisis continue to resonate with multiple generations. Remember is a memorial retrospective exhibition commemorating those lost to AIDS while they were still in their prime before the symptoms of the virus took hold.  The exhibit offers a snapshot of the 1980’s underground, rife with counter culture indignation, sexual exploration and a resistance to the socio-political systems which marginalized alternative, queer lifestyles.  

AIDS Then & Now - a panel discussion 5 – 6PM
Since the beginning of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the 1980’s the underlying causes of HIV/AIDS such as poverty, homophobia, racism and stigma are still rampant. The panelist will focus on the impact and status of the epidemic then and now.

The Panelist:
Dr. William Thompson IV – Infectious Disease & HIV specialist. 
Philip Yeager – Executive Director/CEO at Radiant Health Centers
Alina Oswald – Author and Editor for A&U - America's AIDS Magazine
