Positively Art 2001 Selection

Artists and the executors of artists' estates were invited, through an open competition, to submit up to two works of art for consideration for the Positively Art 2001 Calendar. In August 2000, Visual AIDS invited a prestigious panel of jurors, representing the arts and AIDS sectors, to select the final fourteen art works.

In addition to the entries from across the United States, this year's calendar includes works by Ugandan and South African artists. Positively Art provides a wonderful opportunity to artists with HIV/AIDS to have their art published in full color. It presents their work to the public -- in the homes and offices of supporters in the fight against AIDS -- and reaches a wide and diverse audience across the United States. Additionally, the calendar opens up other exhibition and career opportunities for the artists involved.

The Jurors:

Anthony Aziz

Barton Lidice Benes
Member, Visual AIDS Archive Project

Jeanne Bergman, PhD
Deputy Director, Technical Assistance and Program Evaluation, Bailey House

Larry M. Bruni, MD
Community Physician, Washington, DC

Stefanie Nagorka, MFA
Secretary, Visual AIDS Board of Directors
