Up Against the Wall: Art, Activism, & the AIDS Poster

When: Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through June 19 2022

This is the first major exhibition devoted to the University of Rochester’s vast collection of HIV/AIDS-related posters, featuring 165 of the most visually arresting and thought-provoking posters from more than 8000 posters from 130 countries assembled by collector, physician, and medical historian Dr. Edward C. Atwater. In 2007, Dr. Atwater donated the entire collection, which also includes a broad range of AIDS-related ephemera, to the UR River Campus Libraries’ Department of Rare Books, Special Collections, and Preservation. Today it comprises one of the largest collections of its kind in the world.
