ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

 

The Stamp Gallery at the University of Maryland seeks artwork by artists related to HIV and AIDS. 

 

This fall, Stamp Gallery will be exhibiting panels from the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt, last hosted in the gallery 30 years ago. In the interceding years and despite many technological and medical advances, HIV/AIDS is still an epidemic that disproportionately impacts the dispossessed and marginalized. Politics still tie into policies and funding on preventative drugs, a major barrier to ending the epidemic. Much has changed since the 1980s, but what still remains? 

 

Selected artwork will be exhibited in the Stamp Gallery in the Adele H. Stamp Student Union, University of Maryland, College Park.
