Stop by the Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in Soho, New York on Thursday, December 19 for the opening reception for "Art and AIDS: Perceptions of Life." This new exhibition of the humanity, spirit and love of artists living with HIV & AIDS, is comprised of work from GMHC’s (Gay Men’s Health Crisis) art therapy program participants. Members of the Imperial Court of New York, a longstanding group that raises funds for community-based organizations, will be volunteering their time to greet guests as part of the festivities.

The exhibition is curated by Osvaldo Perdomo and David Livingston. The proceeds from sales go directly to the individual artists. Select pieces for Silent Auction to benefit GMHC.

"Volunteering to teach the art classes at GMHC has been very rewarding,” said David Livingston. "It is great to see my students progressing in their artistic endeavors, helping them build confidence.” Osvaldo Perdomo shared: "The exhibition displays prevalent issues as well as hopeful messages from people living with HIV and AIDS. Some of the artists will be sharing their personal truth which is not an easy thing to do. I thank them for their courage."

Art and AIDS: Perceptions of Life runs from December 19 - January 5.
