ArtServe Artistic Referral Program

HIV Awareness ArtShow
An estimated 1.1 million people in the US are living with HIV, and 15% of them don’t even know it. Florida is disproportionately affected, and while progress has been made, the rate of new HIV diagnosis is back on the rise. ArtServe in collaboration with the Urban League are preparing a HIV awareness show in observance of the Florida AIDS walk in March. The show will be put on display at the League's campus gallery through April.

We seek works that embody the subject of HIV awareness, work that is personal or sympathetic of those fighting HIV, work that is symbolic or emotionally representational of the battle against the disease, and work that carries a message of triumph.
