AMICO Press Release

AMICO Supports Day With(out) Art and World AIDS Day by Blocking Search of The AMICO Library™ Thumbnail Catalog

December 1, 2001
Pittsburgh, PA

Day With(out) Art (DWA) began in 1989 as the national day of action and mourning in response to the AIDS crisis. It was a way for arts professionals to support AIDS awareness and promote positive action. While our museum members support DWA by shutting down their institutions, sending staff to volunteer at AIDS services, or sponsoring special exhibitions of work about AIDS, AMICO is also showing our support by blocking access to the thumbnail catalog of The AMICO Library.

Please take a moment to reflect on the loss that AIDS has had for the world of art. We hope you'll visit this feature of the AMICO home page at another time.

For more information:
World AIDS Day Web Site: http://www.worldaidsday.org/

Sincerely,
The AMICO Staff

     

In June of 2005, the members of the Art Museum Image Consortium voted to dissolve their collaboration. This site remains online for archival reasons.
