TAG presented the exhibition “35 Years of Art to End AIDS” at Melissa Morgan Fine Art in Palm Desert, California, from March 17 through April 7, 2023. This exhibit featured selected works from our Limited Art Editions collection.
Our Limited Art Editions began in 1999 when photographer Ben Thornberry donated over 30 photographs taken from 1988 through 1992, which illustrate the often-heartbreaking reality of the early AIDS epidemic. In 2005, TAG board member and artist Joy Episalla invited other artists to create a limited art edition especially for our Research in Action Awards. Since then, a new edition has been released every year. This catalog of the pieces featured in the exhibition was designed by Joy Episalla, who also curated the exhibit.
We’d also like to thank board member Kevin Goetz for helping to organize and promote the event, which was made possible through the very generous support of the Marta Heflin Foundation.
