The Hirshhorn Goes Red for World AIDS Day
World AIDS Day is an annual event, first observed in 1987, designed to raise awareness of HIV/AIDS and show support for people living with the disease. This year, the specific aim in mind is ending mother-to-child transmissions of AIDS by 2015.
The Hirshhorn will help promote this goal by having its exterior illuminated a vivid red from this evening to midnight, with the help of 12 exterior lights that weigh 125 pounds each.
