The Faces of HIV, a mobile art exhibit, will be open to the public in Broward County on February 7 in Wilton Manors on the corner of 21 Court and Wilton Drive (2020 Wilton Drive, Wilton Manors, FL 33305) between 10:00 am and 3:00 pm. On February 8, the exhibit will be at the Broward College Central Campus (3501 SW Davie Road, Davie, FL 33314), on the patio of building 19 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.
The Florida Department of Health (DOH) has developed The Faces of HIV to convey the stories of Florida residents living with HIV and AIDS. The exhibit captures participants’ stories through touching portraits, firsthand accounts (interviews) and tender journal writings. The stories touch on how the participants became infected, how they dealt with the diagnosis and how HIV as physically altered their bodies and affected their personal relationships with others in their lives.
The purpose of the exhibit is to promote awareness and a better understanding of the disease. DOH hopes that shedding light on the epidemic with an up close and personal glimpse into the lives and struggles of those who are living with HIV will keep the conversation going by helping people feel comfortable about discussing the topic.
