A day without art

When: Saturday, December 1st, 2012
Various Locations (Art Galleries), Victoria, BC

This World AIDS Day, December 1st, local galleries and artists will symbolically black drape art work to recognize the loss of artists and art due to HIV/AIDS. The event “a day without art” is a revival of an annual event that took place in the late 1980s and early 1990s, a period in Victoria when the gay community was devastated AIDS.
