Day Without Art focuses attention on World AIDS Day

Published 12:00 am Saturday, December 1, 2012

Look around Salisbury any given day, and you’ll see art on display.
Take a look around today, and some of it will be hidden beneath black shrouds. It’s not to obscure the works’ messages but to send one: This is what life would be like without art.
Each year, works of art are shrouded to bring attention to World AIDS Day, which is today. Organizers chose Day Without Art because many artists died in the early days of the AIDS epidemic, and the works they might have produced are as invisible as the ones hidden from view today.
The Rowan Care Alliance works to make life better for local residents who have HIV/AIDS, estimated to number about 230, and to prevent the spread of the disease through education and testing.
On Friday, Care Alliance shrouded the Livingstone Bear, the East Innes Street fountain and the Jim Gallucci mobile at St. John’s Lutheran Church. They’ll remove the shrouds Sunday.
