View Website

Please join conceptual artist and designer Doug Meyer for a book signing of HEROES: A TRIBUTE at the MoMA Design Store in Midtown on June 13 from 5:30pm-6:30pm. The book grew out of a traveling exhibition that Meyer called the Heroes Project, which was originally conceived as an installation for the annual DIFFA (Design Industry Foundation to Fight AIDS) dinner. Meyer’s Heroes Project went on to be exhibited in New York, Miami, and Los Angeles. In HEROES: A TRIBUTE, now available in trade hardcover from Tra Publishing, Meyer pays homage by way of portraiture to a cast of brilliant creative figures who were some of the first victims of AIDS and AIDS-related diseases. Among the forty-nine individuals whose lives are celebrated are Robert Mapplethorpe, Keith Haring, Rudolph Nureyev, Freddie Mercury, Rock Hudson, John Duka, Tina Chow, Klaus Nomi, Halston, and Angelo Donghia.
