Join us this year for our Visual AIDS Vanguard Awards and Spring Gala as we honor Bureau (founding partners Marlene McCarty and Donald Moffett), Dr. Brian Saltzman, and Kia Michelle Benbow (Kia Labeija) at the Angel Orensanz Foundation for Contemporary Art in NYC.

The Visual AIDS Vanguard Awards (VAVA) recognize the achievements and contributions of artists, activists and art supporters who strengthen the cultural history of art activism and reinforce the mission of Visual AIDS. We honor their commitment to AIDS advocacy, education, prevention, and their support of artists with HIV/AIDS.

The Visual AIDS Vanguard Awards include a special Bill Olander Award presented to an individual in the creative arts living with HIV, and is named in honor of the late New Museum curator and co-founder of Visual AIDS.
