University of Rochester (Memorial Art Gallery, University of Rochester)

Log Number: MA-245369-OMS-20

The Memorial Art Gallery of the University of Rochester will open its Up Against the Wall: Art, Activism, and the AIDS Poster exhibition to share critical information about HIV/AIDS and its history, as well as allow for dynamic and intentional museum/library collaboration. The museum's collections will serve as a way to use art, design, language, and public health to engage audiences and to facilitate difficult conversations that many still consider controversial. The goal of this project is to increase awareness about the current state of HIV/AIDS, as well as how to prevent it. Key stakeholders, community leaders, and national figures will advise in the creation of and guide this important project.
