Border AIDS Partnership to Host Día de los Muertos Spotlight

“Art Celebrates Life” is the theme of this year’s 12th annual Border AIDS Partnership (BAP) Día de los Muertos Spotlight, a fine art silent auction and skull decorating competition in observance of the Day of the Dead.

The local nonprofit’s event is from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, November 4 in the Foundation Room, 333 N. Oregon Street, across from San Jacinto Plaza.

“Our twelfth silent art auction and fifth skull decorating competition is a fun way for local artists and the community to join together to provide critical resources for people from El Paso, Ciudad Juárez and Las Cruces who are battling HIV/AIDS,” said Floyd Johnson, event committee chairman and president of BAP.

Past Spotlights have featured original work by area artists such as Margarita Cabrera, Linda Hains, Jesus ‘Cimi’ Alvarado, Erica Marin, Ben Sáenz, Victor Navarro, Miguel Bonilla, Suzi Davidoff, and Horace Mayfield.

In 1994, the El Paso Community Foundation and the US/Mexico Border Health Association created a local HIV/AIDS partnership to provide assistance to nonprofit organizations in the region working on this critical health problem.

With support from AIDS United, the collaboration became the Border AIDS Partnership, a bi-national and tri-state funding collaborative that has been providing funding for HIV/AIDS education and prevention activities in El Paso, Southern New Mexico and Ciudad Juárez. BAP now operates as an independent 501c3 nonprofit.

Since 1996, the Border AIDS Partnership has distributed more than $2 million to support innovative HIV prevention and education programs.

Previous grantees include Centro Caritativo Para Atención de Enfermos de Sida, University Medical Center of El Paso’s Teen Advisory Board, Programa Compañeros, support group HIVida, Actúa y Toma El Control, Opportunity Center for the Homeless, and Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center, Families & Youth, Inc.
