Day Without Art 1996

MOCRA observes Day Without Art, a national day of action and mourning in response to the AIDS crisis, with a presentation of selected works from the acclaimed group exhibition Consecrations: The Spiritual in Art in the Time of AIDS.

Sunday, December 1, 1994  11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
and continuing during regular museum hours through December 22, 1996


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, MOCRA observes Day Without Art throughout the month of December by presenting selected works from Consecrations: The Spiritual in Art in the Time of AIDS, the first national group exhibition to explore AIDS within a spiritual framework, originally shown in Fall 1994. This special exhibition, Consecrations Revisited, will be on display during regular museum hours through December 22, 1996.

We welcome the whole St. Louis community to visit this special exhibition and remember those whose lives have been affected by HIV/AIDS.
