Dogwoods under the Berry Moon
Visual AIDS Exhibition Opening
Dogwoods Under The Berry Moon - Identify and Bear Witness To what or whom do we owe our identity? Why and Whither? The Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) identified the month of June by the appearance of the Berry Moon, suggested by the ripening of the strawberry during this month. The color red is used in AIDS ribbons. The LGTB community identifies June as PRIDE month. The color of dogwoods are white but by June the flowers have all fallen. This combination reflects the intent of "Dogwoods under a Berry Moon" with a bittersweet sense of remembrance and observation to the of loss of all life, limb & liberty of peoples and persons past, present and future.
