Don't miss this important historical collection of ORIGINAL Advertisements from the 80's AIDS epidemic.
AIDS is still very much an ongoing battle. These images depict deeply impactful awareness-raising campaigns, from the beginning of the outbreak here in the U.S. The ideas presented here are still very relevant.
The condom-centric show features works like: "He Loves me, He loves me not" then "He Loves Me" printed next a beautiful huge condom; Sleep With A Lifeguard Tonight” and "Stops Transmission-Fluid Leaks" are other classics from the period.
Proceeds from the professionally framed images benefit Whitman-Walker Clinic and Food & Friends. -All images donated by Jeff McElhaney.
On view at Long View Gallery until December 31st
