Welcome to the website of the AIDS Museum! Our purpose is to provide AIDS awareness and education through the arts.
Since 2006, we have held seven exhibits of artwork related to AIDS and art by HIV-positive artists. Although the AIDS Museum does not yet have a permanent location, our emphasis is on Newark, New Jersey. Through our programs, we hope to reduce the stigma associated with AIDS, raise awareness, and educate people to help them protect themselves from HIV.
We also hope to contribute to the cultural and economic development of Newark and reduce the number of new infections here. Our past exhibits have been held at universities such as The New School, Seton Hall, Rutgers, and George Mason , and at galleries including World Culture Open and Red Saw Art. Later in 2010, the AIDS Museum will partner with the Newark Public Schools to bring exhibits and programs to students in coordination with their high school health curriculum. I invite you to return to the AIDS Museum website again soon for more details about these exciting events.
