MOCRA Programs and Events
Day Without Art 1994
MOCRA observes Day Without Art, a national day of action and mourning in response to the AIDS crisis, with a special collaborative programming involving members of the St. Louis visual and performing arts communities.
Thursday, December 1, 1994 5:30 p.m.
Day Without Art has been observed by galleries and museums annually since 1989 on December 1, World AIDS Day, in recognition of the striking impact of HIV/AIDS on the creative community. It serves as a day of action and mourning and allows us to honor those who have died and to renew our efforts as a community toward the total eradication of HIV/AIDS.
This year, in the context of the first national group exhibition that explores AIDS within a spiritual framework, members of the St. Louis creative community gather to pay tribute to those who are living with, and who have died from, HIV/AIDS.
Performers include members of Burning Feet Dance Company, the Ambassadors of the Gateway Men's Chorus, and members of the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra and Saint Louis Symphony Chorus.
We warmly welcome the whole St. Louis community to participate in this evening of remembrance.
This program is made possible in part by financial support from the Regional Arts Commission.
