World AIDS Day Art Installation

Get involved before the new year!

On Wednesday December 5 & Thursday December 6, we will be hosting an interactive art installation composed of 700 condoms to be displayed at MSB Stone Lobby. The public will be encouraged to take these condoms to reveal the underlying message beneath. By taking these condoms, participants will not only be supporting our project but will also be promoting HIV prevention and safe sex. To tune into the theme of this year’s International AIDS Conference, a time lapse video will be taken to symbolically demonstrate the tide turning to zero.

If you’d like to get involved, we need volunteers to help prepare the installation on December 1st and 4th, as well as volunteers to man the booth on December 5th and 6th. For more information, e-mail and sign up on the doodle with your availabilities.
