The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center is currently presenting a selection of work from Eric Rhein's  Leaves as part of their 25th anniversary celebration.

Statement about Leaves:

Leaves, conceived by Eric Rhein in the fall of 1996 at the MacDowell Artists Colony, pays tribute to people he has known who died of complications from AIDS. The work, which began with tributes to 80 individuals, now numbers more than 180, mirroring the ongoing AIDS epidemic.

Leaves has been presented in both public and private institutions, such as the XVI International AIDS Conference in Toronto, Canada; The Neuberger Museum of Art, SUNY Purchase; The Memphis College of Art; the American Folk Art Museum in New York; and the Ambassadorial Residence in Yaoundé, Cameroon.
