The Day Without Art (DWA) first began on December 1, 1989– World AIDS Day– to highlight multiple landscapes of loss because of AIDS. Unfortunately, the worldwide AIDS crisis continues to wage on. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, each day, features a work of art for visitors to experience on their website. Today, that piece of artwork was a black rectangle. As they museum explains, “In observance of Day Without Art, an international program to mark AIDS Awareness Day, today’s daily artwork will not appear.” On this World AIDS Day, imagine what your life would be without art. And consider what you can do to help the victims of this cruel disease.
