TAM is the first museum to reveal how the HIV/AIDS crisis indelibly changed the trajectory of American art, through the exhibition Art AIDS America, an unprecedented survey of 30 years of art made in response to the epidemic in the United States. Transforming pain and loss into activism, expressions of beauty, and portrayals of personal experience, artists tell stories of resilience, hope, and change. 

You can be part of the change by supporting this groundbreaking exhibition through our crowdfunding campaign. Please encourage others to see the exhibition and to give.
