To remember, to support, to educate…University Galleries of Illinois State University is teaming up with the McLean County AIDS Task Force to increase HIV/AIDS awareness. HIV/AIDS continues to have a devastating impact on individuals and families, both here and abroad. As we take time to recognize the lives of those lost and those living, let us remember that awareness and education are the most potent tools to combatting HIV/AIDS.
To coincide with World AIDS Day, arts organizations annually recognize Day With(out) Art on December 1. This year, University Galleries is bringing attention to those who have been lost to AIDS by supporting those in our community who are living with AIDS-related illnesses. We are collecting gas/grocery gifts cards (or money to purchase gift cards) for the McLean County AIDS Task Force to distribute during their ongoing Holiday Basket drive.
Please bring your donations to University Galleries between Monday, November 28 and Friday, December 9.
