AIDS Museum

The AIDS Museum is an AIDS museum in Newark, USA. There is an AIDS Museum in Thailand and another being developed in South Africa. This planned museum, currently operating without a fixed location, will be located in Newark, New Jersey, USA.[1] The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center, in Wilton Manors, Florida, opened on May 15, 2014.[2][3][4]

It was founded in December 2004 and plans for the first home to be in Newark developed in 2006 in connection with the 25th anniversary of the AIDS pandemic.[4] One of the museum's goals is to showcase art by HIV positive artists.[5]

Among the museum's exhibits are:

  • an exhibit of art by HIV-positive artists titled "Eyes of Mercy", was held from November 11 through December 1, 2006 at Seton Hall University in South Orange, NJ.
  • The museum also co-organized an exhibit titled "Edge of Light: Art in the Age of AIDS" at the Paul Robeson Center Gallery at Rutgers Newark, which ran from July 2007 until December 2007.
  • the World Culture Open Gallery (New York) was the site of a collaborative project called "Positive Still: Artists Respond to AIDS" featuring, among other artwork, five pieces from the AIDS Museum's permanent collection.
