HIV30 art installation unveiled on Broadway

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

On July 14, the HIV30 group displayed a collaborative art installation on the Sound Transit 'Red Wall' along Broadway on Capitol Hill. Organizers are working together to create a three-part art installation that both reflects and commemorates our unique individual and community experiences in regard to the epidemic that changed the landscape of the world.

Members of the local LGBT community joined HIV30 at the Red Wall for the unveiling of the first section of the HIV30 Red Wall project, 30 Years, A Retrospective, on Thursday at 7 p.m.

The section depicts a graphic timeline of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and the impacts it has had both locally and nationally. The unveiling featured an invocation and blessing from the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, and included remarks from Fred Swanson, Gay City Health Project; Robert Yoon, Seattle HIV Vaccine Trials Unit; and Jeffrey Hedgepeth, Pride Foundation.

The unveiling of the remaining two sections will take place over the next six months. The second section will showcase imagery representing people's experiences with HIV/AIDS in Seattle, and will be installed in early autumn. The third installation will highlight ways to stay involved and demonstrate continued commitment to fighting HIV/AIDS, and will be installed in conjunction with the 2011 World AIDS Day in December.
