Day With(out) Art

On Monday, December 1, 5 p.m. at the Hussey Room, Michigan League (911 N. University), renowned poet, memoirist, biographer and playwright Honor Moore will present a reading as part of the 2008 Day With(out) Art observance. Her most recent work The Bishop's Daughter: a memoir discusses her father, an Episcopal priest and civil rights activist who struggled with his sexuality. Moore teaches in the graduate writing programs at the New School and Columbia University School of the Arts.

Since 1989, Day With(out) Art is observed as a national day of recognition and mourning in response to the AIDS crisis. Today some 8000 organizations annually come together to acknowledge the devastating toll that HIV and AIDS have taken on the worldwide creative and performing arts communities.

As a museum devoted to fostering and presenting creative expression and to preserving culture memory, University of Michigan Museum of Art has long been committed to participation in this day of remembrance. The event is free and open to the public.
