Gallery Closed for DAY WITHOUT ART Honouring World AIDS Day

Thursday, December 1

Day Without Art (DWA) began on December 1, 1989 as a day of action and mourning in response to the AIDS crisis. To make the public aware that AIDS can touch everyone, and inspire positive action, some 800 art and AIDS groups participated in the first Day Without Art, shutting down museums, sending staff to volunteer at AIDS services, or sponsoring special exhibitions of work about AIDS. Since then, Day With(out) Art has grown into a collaborative project in which an estimated 8,000 national and international museums, galleries, art centres, AIDS service organizations, libraries, high schools and colleges take part.

The WKP Kennedy Gallery honours Day Without Art on December 1, 2011, in collaboration with the AIDS Committee of North Bay and Area.
