June was a dazzling and dizzying month.
We opened two exhibitions, hosted panel discussions, partnered and supported related events, got a glowing review in The New York Times, took part in PRIDE, launched the NOT OVER tumblr, released a book, presented off-site performances, began an interview series and closed one exhibition. All thanks to the creativity, dedication and hard work of our artist members, volunteers, curators, partners and supporters!

Looking back, even 2 days into a new month, it is clear that this was an amazing time for Visual AIDS. Artists, activists, friends, and lovers came together to discuss art, AIDS, and action—past, present and future. We are so grateful. Above are a few photos and below is a run down of what we did.
