For a fifth year, the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art will generously donate its gallery to host, "Art & AIDS: Perceptions of Life," an exhibition featuring artists living with HIV and AIDS. One hundred works of art, utilizing diverse media, will be on display from December 19 to January 5. The exhibition is the outcome of work from weekly therapeutic art classes run by GMHC's Volunteer, Work, and Wellness Center. Art teachers donate their time to conduct classes for GMHC's clients (consisting of professional and nonprofessional artists) and assist in curating the annual exhibition. The work that is sold during the exhibition allows the artists to increase their financial independence, which is particularly important for those who live on a limited income. Plus the artists are then able to participate in additional shows, as most galleries mandate that artists must have already been part of one show.
