(SUNNYVALE, CA December 1, 2011) On World AIDS Day, December 1, 2011, The Art Institute of California—Sunnyvale will observe a Day With(out) Art by participating in a national, simultaneous, free screening of “Untitled,” a 60-minute montage of archival and pop footage recalling the passionate activism sparked by the early years of the AIDS crisis.
Day With(out) Art was launched by Visual AIDS arts organization in 1989 as a national day of action and mourning in response to AIDS. As part of the 22nd Day With(out) Art, a collaborative project with over 55 major museums, arts organizations, community groups and colleges throughout the United States, The Art Institute of California—Sunnyvale will screen the film by Jim Hodges, Encke King, and Carlos Marques da Cruz.
Patrick Baird, academic director of the Graphic Design, Web Design & Interactive Media, and Digital Photography programs at the Sunnyvale campus shared that the student group of the professional association for design (AIGA), wanted to host the event because “it’s a way to acknowledge an important issue and provide an open forum for discussion for students and interested individuals.”
