The Getty Center in Los Angeles once again shrouded two works of art in
response to "Day without Art", on December 1st. The pieces of art that
were totally covered with black fabric were "Venus" by Joseph Nollekens
and "The Holy Family" by Nicolas Poussin.

The Getty also produced a flyer that provided information and resources
about this epidemic. From the flyer one learns that this day is , "... a
time when the international arts community pauses to remember and respond
to the AIDS crisis and its impact on cultural life."

If you know of a teacher, museum, or anyone who observed "Day without Art"
I would like to know. Many thanks.
