The registration period will close when 12 artists have registered. Registered art will need to be delivered to CAMP Rehoboth on November 22, 28, or 29 between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.The purpose of this exhibition is to promote dialogue and raise awareness. HIV/AIDS has a complicated story, one of devastation, loss, anger, and isolation, as well as survival and hope. There are many aspects to consider: the deep cultural history of HIV/AIDS and activism, contemporary issues around Black and Brown lives, the disproportionate infection rates among youth of color, homophobic and transphobic driven laws still present today, and the hope for a future in a world without AIDS.AIDS experiences have changed the world of art. Self-expression and social commentary are important aspects of the art we create. How have you used your art to give voice to these issues?CAMP Rehoboth looks forward to including your art in this thought-provoking exhibition.
