ARIZONA: Art Show Is Setting for HIV/AIDS Discussion Wednesday




 

Daily Courier (Prescott) (01.28.2014)

The Daily Courier reported that the Prescott, Ariz., nonprofit Northland Cares would sponsor a free HIV/AIDS roundtable discussion at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 29, at the Prescott College Art Gallery in the Sam Hill Warehouse. On display at the gallery was the “Brothers Forever: A Promise Fulfilled” exhibit, which featured photography, paintings, woodwork, and three-dimensional mosaics by Stephen Smith and his brother Glenn Smith, who died of AIDS in 1994. Northland Cares Executive Director Tricia Goffena-Beyer noted the event would include a 15-minute presentation on the history of HIV, current updates, and future of the virus. Attendees also could expect casual conversation, light refreshments, and an opportunity to view the exhibit. Gallery Coordinator M. Jennifer Chandler stated that the exhibit accomplished the Smith brothers’ unfulfilled plans for a joint exhibit and provided an opportunity for a “contemporary dialogue” on HIV/AIDS. Chandler, whose mother helped start an AIDS organization in Phoenix in 1986, feared that the present generation of students was unaware of the breadth and devastation of the early HIV epidemic.
