World AIDS Day 2020

HIV/AIDS Activism Through Art

December 1st, 2020

The AIDS Service Foundation of Greater Kansas City (ASF) is soliciting artist mural proposals from regional artists and artist teams in order to create a public large-scale and site-specific outdoor mural that will tell a story and spark conversations about HIV/AIDS in the Kansas City community.  The ASF World AIDS Day 2020 theme is HIV/AIDS Activism Through Art.

The ASF works to raise money and awareness for organizations that provide shelter, medical care and emergency services for the more than 5,700 men, women and children living in Kansas City affected by HIV/AIDS.

“With this mural we want to highlight the importance of access to quality healthcare for all communities.  The Mural will speak to the many faces of HIV/AIDS while reminding everyone of the need to eliminate HIV stigma,” jointly stated Sandy Geduldig and Chadwick Brooks, World AIDS Day 2020 Co-Chairs.

Potential candidates will be asked to convey how HIV/AIDS has or continues to shape her/his/their attitudes, emotions, sensitivity and therefore their work around this subject matter.  Mural Project leadership team suggests as Picasso did with Guernica, Van Gogh did with The Potato Eaters, and Keith Haring did with Silence = Death, artists have the ability to produce works which visually encapsulate education, sorrow, suffering, and hope.

The objective of this RFP is to locate a mural artist that will provide the best overall quality to ASF and the World AIDS Day 2020 Mural Project.  Click here for the Request For Proposal.  Proposals must be received by September 15, 2020 to be considered.
