“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
