Artist and AIDS
activist subject of panel discussion, December 6 in New
York

New York City's School of Visual Arts and Visual AIDS, in partnership with the Gesso Foundation, will hold "Force of Nature: The Art and Activism of Frank Moore," a panel discussion celebrating the late New York-based painter who was a pioneering advocate for HIV-positive people on December 6 in New York. Moore, an internationally recognized artist whose works are found in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, also was a longtime board member of Visual AIDS and a collaborating member of a group of artists who conceived and launched the [Red] Ribbon Project, which in 1991 created one of the most enduring symbols of AIDS awareness. Moore died of AIDS complications at the age of 48 in 2002. The event will include a slide presentation of Moore's works and a panel discussion moderated by Amy Sadao, director of Visual AIDS. Admission is $10, with all funds raised benefiting Visual AIDS's Frank Moore Archive Project, which assists HIV-positive artists. The event will be held at 7 p.m. at the School of Visual Arts, 209 E. 23rd St., third-floor amphitheater. For more information, go online to www.schoolofvisualarts.edu.
