Join Dr. Eric Avery, artist, and Dr. Anne S. De Groot (class of 1978), Founder, CEO & CFO, EpiVax, Inc., for a presentation and dialogue about their approaches to activism and advocacy through art and science.
Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Eric Avery: AIDS Work on view at Smith College Museum of Art through December 11.
Join artist Eric Avery for a special gallery talk in the exhibition Eric Avery: AIDS WORK. Learn from the artist’s perspective about the art works on display, including more than 30 prints and books acquired by SCMA and the Mortimer Rare Book Room in 2014. This group represents a cohesive and important body of work that documents three decades in the life of the major public health crisis of AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). As an artist, physician, and gay man, Avery was at the center of the crisis both personally and professionally.
