AIDS Project Greater Danbury is featuring the works of artist Jonathan-Joseph Ganjian, its board adviser, at the Brookfield Theatre for the Arts in Brookfield, Conn., during its production of “Rent,” to raise funds and awareness for individuals with HIV/AIDS. Visitors can see the works prior to performances Wednesdays–Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. throughout July. Ganjian is an HIV-positive artist who works primarily on canvas and with glass. The AIDS Project will use 30 percent of the proceeds from sales of Ganjian’s works to help fund re-wrapping a Prevention on Wheels van so that individuals can find it more easily as it travels through town. The van provides testing and syringe exchange to those at high risk for HIV and other STDs. For further information, visit www.aidsprojectgreaterdanbury.org.
