    Thomas Red Owl Haukaas (1950−), More Time Expected, 2002. Hand-made ink and pencil on antique ledger paper, 16.5 in × 27.5 in/41.9 cm × 69.9 cm. Tacoma Art Museum, 1701 Pacific Avenue, Tacoma, WA 98402, United States. Gift of Greg Kucera and Larry Yocoreem in honor of Rock Hushka. In June 1981, five cases of Pneumocystis pneumonia in gay men were described in CDC’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. Those cases signaled the start of the AIDS pandemic, which now enters its fifth de- cade and has to date resulted in more than 75 mil- lion HIV infections and 32 million deaths worldwide. UNAIDS estimates that in 2019, 38 million persons were living with HIV, 1.7 million became newly in- fected, and 690,000 died with HIV disease. Since the beginning of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, artists―some involved in AIDS activist organizations and others working independently―have applied their talents and skills to create, share, and deliver works that depict messages calling for political action and scientific research, documenting the impact of AIDS among various and diverse communities and groups, and celebrating medical breakthroughs and advances in treating AIDS. In 2016, a traveling exhi- bition entitled Art AIDS America examined the ongo- ing influence and impact of the AIDS pandemic on American art. Among the more than 125 works featured in that traveling exhibition was More Time Expected by Lakota artist Thomas Red Owl Haukaas, displayed on this month’s cover.
