30 Years/30 Lives
Photo exhibit to mark HIV/AIDS’ three decades. Display to run simultaneously at three locations April 15 - July 31
LECTURE / THURSDAY / MAY 12
Award-winning professor and theologian Kimberly Vrudny will speak about her photography exhibit, 30 Years/30 Lives: Documenting a Pandemic at 4 p.m. on Thursday, May 12 at Methodist Healthcare’s Center of Excellence in Faith & Health, 1265 Union Ave. An artist reception will follow at 5:30 p.m. at Church Health Center Wellness, 1115 Union. Ave.
30 Years/30 Lives follows the lives of 30 people in South Africa, the United States, Mexico, and Thailand who have been touched by the HIV/AIDS pandemic either personally, as a family member, or through their work in an organization.
“AIDS has become a disease of the poor,” said Church Health Center executive director Dr. Scott Morris. “Telling the story of AIDS through art is a powerful witness to the suffering this virus causes and the hope people of faith can bring to those affected. The Church Health Center is proud to be involved in this exhibit.”
The exhibit itself will be on display April 15-July 31 at Church Health Center, Methodist University Hospital and St. John’s United Methodist Church, all of which have sponsored the free exhibition.
Kimberly Vrudny is the Associate Professor of Systematic Theology at the University of Saint Thomas in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
