MOCRA Programs and Events

Day Without Art 2000

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, November 30, 2000  6:00 p.m.


Day With(out) 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. MOCRA previously hosted a Day Without Art event in 1994.

This year, in the context of a retrospective exhibition by New York artist Robert Farber, members of the St. Louis creative community again gather to pay tribute to those who are living with, and who have died from, HIV/AIDS.

Performers include David Halen (concert master, St. Louis Symphony),  Donna Parrone and Marty Stanberry (HotHouse Theatre Co.), Sharon Paige (Gerald Moore & G.R.A.C.E.), Flo Lawshe, and the Gateway Men's Chorus Ambassadors. Roseann Weiss (Critical Mass), Thomas Adams (AIDS Foundation of St. Louis), and Terrence Dempsey, S.J. (MOCRA) emcee the event.

Day Without Art has been organized by Critical Mass, the AIDS Foundation of Saint Louis, and MOCRA. We warmly welcome the whole St. Louis community to participate in this evening of remembrance.
