Description

As part of a commemoration of World AIDS Day in 1997, physician and artist Eric Avery displayed some of his work in the Strauss Gallery of Harvard's Fogg Museum in an exhibit, Art as Medicine/Medicine as Art. 3' by 6' prints of the Lifecycle of HIV entering a lymphocyte were papered over the walls of a small installation in the gallery where Zimberg Clinic staff members provided HIV information to the public. AIDS and HIV research, along with research on other emerging diseases, are subjects of growing interest to historians of medicine and an area of future collecting for the Library.
