The Faces of HIV To Spend World AIDS Day and The Rest of December in Miami
To mark World AIDS Day on December 1, 2014, the Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade will honor those lost to HIV and AIDS with a special installation of its award-winning Faces of HIV Art Exhibit.
Faces of HIV depicts the lives of Florida residents living with HIV and AIDS through larger-than-life portraits, accompanied by thought-provoking video stories and powerful intimate journals. Participants of the project address how they became infected with HIV and first dealt with their diagnoses, as well as their personal relationships, effects of HIV on the body and more.
First, History Miami will host the free exhibit in its Community Gallery from Nov. 29, 2014 through Jan. 4, 2015. The exhibit will be open to visitors Mondays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m.
The Faces of HIV Mobile Art Exhibit will then appear in Miami for two free shows. The mobile art exhibit gives visitors an up-close and personal glimpse into the lives of those living with HIV in hopes of promoting awareness and understanding about the disease.
On Monday December 1 you can find the exhibit at St. Thomas University on NW 37th Avenue in Miami Gardens from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Then on December 2 Florida International University will host the exhibit on its Modesto A. Maidique campus at 11200 SW 8th Street in Miami from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Bring a friend to see The Faces of HIV Mobile Art Exhibit or museum exhibit and hear first hand about the personal relationships, stigma and care issues associated with being HIV positive.
