Call to Artists: Remembering World AIDS Day

27 Mar

In commemoration of 25 years of service, the Pierce County AIDS Foundation (PCAF) is seeking artists in all media to create artworks inspired by the iconic red ribbon for its World AIDS Day fund-raising event. Selected artworks will be auctioned at ART FOR AIDS: Ribbons of Reflection, a gala to be held at the Tacoma Art Museum on Dec. 1, 2012. Artists will create an original work that features the red twist ribbon, the visual symbol of the HIV/AIDS virus for the past 30 years, in either representational or abstract form. Artworks should take into consideration the full range of the pandemic from crisis to hope for a cure.

Thirty artworks will be selected for display in venues throughout the city through Dec. 1, 2012. A site map for the art pieces will be published and distributed throughout Tacoma. On World AIDS Day, Dec. 1, the artworks will go up for auction at the PCAF gala at TAM. Participating artists will receive free entry to the event. Find the application here (click under Call to Artists). For more information, please visit http://www.piercecountyaids.org, or contact Jill Frey at 253.383.2565 or jfrey@piercecountyaids.org.
