Arts community marks AIDS Awareness Week

November 29, 1990

Saturday marks "Day Without Art 1990," which celebrates the achievements of AIDS victims while mourning the losses in creative communities. It is a project of the New York-based group Visual AIDS.

The Baltimore visual arts community will join the effort:

* BAUhouse, 1713 N. Charles St., will sponsor "AIDS=AID," a monthlong exhibition of artwork from artists in the Mid-Atlantic region. ACT UP BALTO (the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power -- Baltimore) will co-sponsor the show, which opens Saturday and runs through Dec. 31. The BAUhouse opening also features "The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me" by New York performance artist and writer David Drake.

* Goucher College will display six 12-foot squares of The NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt tomorrow through Sunday in the Rosenberg Gallery at Towson State University. A candlelight vigil will begin at 7 p.m. tomorrow.

* School #33 Art Center, 1427 Light St., will host an AIDS quilt-making workshop from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday. Participants should bring a panel design. Sewing materials will be provided; quilt-makers will instruct. Panels will be shipped to the Names Project Headquarters in San Francisco to be added to the memorial quilt.
