Art & AIDS: Amor y PasiĆ³n is an exhibition featuring artists living with HIV and AIDS. 
The exhibition is an outcome of weekly therapeutic art classes run by GMHC's Volunteer, Work and Wellness Center and by artists who have come to GMHC looking for help or support after they learned about their diagnosis. 
Art teachers donate their time to teach classes for GMHC's clients (consisting of professional and non-professional artists), and assist in curating the annual exhibition. 
Artwork sold during the exhibition allows artists to increase their financial independence, plus, the artists are then able to participate in additional art shows as most galleries mandate that artists must have already been part of one show.
