Take a Whirl

Surrender your whole being to a note, and gravity disappears...
~ Carlos Santana

Jazz pianist Fred Hersch today. Hersch has been HIV+ since the 1980s and has contributed to The Estate Project, which is our other focus today. The mission of The Estate Project is:
* to provide practical estate planning advice to all artists, especially those living with HIV/AIDS
* to document and offset the immense loss wrought by AIDS in all artistic disciplines
* to preserve the cultural legacy of the AIDS crisis so that future generations can enjoy, study and engage artworks as aesthetic achievements and historical documents
The Estate Project has archives for music, literature, dance, film, video, and visual arts.
