Declaration of loss...

Today we stand together, Today we stand in silence.

Today we mourn the loss of painters, photographers, dancers, printmakers, actors, filmmakers, singers, choreographers, poets, sculptors, authors, musicians, designers... all the artists who have died from AIDS.

Today we collectively grieve the loss of future work from recognized artists, as well as the absence of countless artists yet to be.

Today we declare our loss.December 1 is a day without art, an international day of observance which focuses attention on the profound impact AIDS has had on artists and the world’s art community.

A day without art celebrates the lives of our colleagues and friends while mourning their loss in our creative communities.
