Milwaukee

World AIDS Day, December 1st 2014

The exhibition opened to rave reviews at Stockholm Gallery in The Fortress, located in Milwaukee’s historic Brewer’s Hill.  It was two months of buildout to get the space ready for the opening reception.

Open for one short week, Preservatif drew large crowds from the beginning to end.  Events throughout the week included a VIP Preview Party prior to the opening reception, Panel Talk and reception hosted by Diverse & Resilient, and ended on Saturday with a reception and talk hosted by Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin.
