Art Lives is the new online exhibit dedicated to honoring the legacies of a generation of artists lost to AIDS. POBA, a non-profit "virtual arts center" dedicated to celebrating the work of late artists of the 20th and 21st centuries, teamed with a coalition of HIV/AIDS organizations--including DIFFA (Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS), LifeBEAT: Music Fights AIDS, and Visual AIDS--to create the permanent online platform, which launches today to commemorate World AIDS Day.
The exhibit includes early footage and audio recordings of disco diva Sylvester; original sketches and fabrications by acclaimed fashion designer Patrick Kelly; graphics by Ken Kendrick, famously known for designing the "Just Say No" anti-drug logo; and other creative forces devestated by the epidemic.
