Big thank you to the Duane Reed Gallery team – Duane, Glenn, Merrill and Ethan – for the fabulous installation of our show Second Wind that opens tonight, which is why you have not heard from us in awhile!  Clicking on our show title accesses an on-line catalog – thanks Duane and Glenn for that, too!

“Art AIDS America is an epic and a national treasure. “  Jen Graves, The Stranger, 10/07/15

“I have never been to a show where I have wanted to read everything.  Suddenly, it was closing time … I couldn’t believe I had been there that long.”  Jeanne Brennan

Rock Huschka, lead curator of Tacoma Art Museum, has been working on this show for a decade with his co-curator Jonathan David Katz.  Arts AIDS America is a gathering of artworks that tell the story of the reality and horror of death in America in the 80s and 90s, and is a vision Hushka had as an art student in the 80s.  It is a must-see.  Closing date:  1/10/16
