Media Alert: What’s Your Sign? Mural Project – Brooklyn, NY

We regret to inform you that due to predicted inclement weather, including possible impact by Hurricane Joaquin sometime this weekend, the Saturday, October 3 official unveiling and dedication of the What’s Your Sign? Mural Project at the corner of St. Johns Place and Underhill Avenue, Prospect Heights, Brooklyn has been cancelled.

The project continues and will be installed at the site when the weather improves later next week.  On a date in mid-November, still to be determined, the individual art panels from the zodiac-themed exhibit will be displayed and auctioned at an art gallery. At that time, Love Heals, the Alison Gertz Foundation for AIDS Education (www.loveheals.org), in partnership with the New York City Health Department, will host a short dedication and recognition ceremony.  Proceeds from the individual sales will benefit the work of Love Heals.

The mural, featuring the talent of 16 renowned street artists, will be dedicated to the life and work of the late AIDS Activist Alison Gertz, whose AIDS-related death in 1992 at the age of 26 inspired the organization’s founding.  The street art exhibit and event will also raise public awareness about disproportionately high rates of new HIV infections and new AIDS diagnoses among New York City’s Black and Latino youth.

Despite remarkable progress in HIV prevention and care, New York City’s Black and Latino populations continue to bear a disproportionate burden of the city’s HIV/AIDS epidemic. Together, Blacks and Latinos account for approximately 53% of the city’s total population; however, they account for 76% of new HIV diagnoses, 83% of new AIDS diagnoses, 77% of persons living with HIV/AIDS, and 83% of HIV-related deaths, as of December 31, 2013, according to the New York City Health Department.  The New York State Department of Health released data indicating that in 2013, Blacks and Latinos comprised 85% of new HIV diagnoses among 12 – 24 year olds and 91% of new AIDS diagnoses in New York City, data which highlight the extent of the devastating HIV/AIDS crisis affecting communities of color.

Thank you for your support and stay tuned for more updates.
