The AMP: AIDS Memorial Pathway will use public art to create a physical place for remembrance and reflection, utilize technology to share stories about the epidemic and the diverse community responses to the crisis, and provide a call to action to end HIV/AIDS, stigma, and discrimination.
Set in the heart of Capitol Hill, on the plaza above the Capitol Hill Light Rail station and across the north edge of Cal Anderson Park, The AMP will be one of the most significant public art installations in the region. Artist Horatio Law created The AMP Master Art Plan that articulates a cohesive vision for a place for remembrance, storytelling, and call for action. The Art Plan outlined four specific opportunities for artworks by a variety of artists, which collectively create a pathway inspired by the history of the AIDS crisis that remind us to take action for a world free of AIDS and discrimination. We will be enriched by a memorial pathway both beautiful and profound.
The Permanent Artworks include:
andimgonnamisseverybody by Christopher Paul Jordan, is sited in the north end of the public plaza, and is a centerpiece of The AMP.
We’re Already Here by Civilization, are on opposite ends of the plaza and the northwest corner of Cal Anderson Park, and serve as connecting elements of The AMP. The sculptures of protest signs carry messages from collective actions since the beginning of HIV/AIDS.
In This Way We Loved One Another by Storme Webber, on the walls of the Cathy Hillenbrand meeting room, visible from the street, in the Station House building.
Ribbon of Light by Horatio Law, will be a reflective area with three stations centered on the northeast edge of Cal Anderson Park.
