40 years. From the first reported cases in 1981 to the present, the world has seen HIV/AIDS progress from a death sentence into a manageable, chronic illness. In one generation, we made significant advances in HIV prevention and care. Today, groundbreaking medications offer hope for a long, healthy life to people who are living with, or at risk for, HIV/AIDS.

While we’ve accomplished so much, there is still more work to be done to break down the barriers and harmful stereotypes that still plague this disease. As long as stigma and misconception pervade conversation, we must find new ways to talk about HIV and AIDS.

Art plays an important part in helping us tell our stories.

Produced by local artist Toby Gotesman Schneier, The Colors of HIV is 17-work series that reflects many different aspects of HIV/AIDS. The paintings serve as visual representations of the emotional moments experienced by the families whose lives have been affected by the virus.

Through this virtual exhibit, we invite you to experience our permanent pieces. Then, visit us in person by registering for a private tour. Tickets can be purchased for $40 from

As a reminder, all pieces featured in the exhibit are for sale with a portion of the proceeds benefitting our museum. Your purchases will help us continue to curate beautiful exhibits, provide important educational programming and foster meaningful dialogue in our community. Together, we can end stigma and continue documenting the human experience of this disease until the last story is told.

With gratitude,
The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center Board of Directors
