This article shared 271 times since Friday
An exhibition of 60 iconic photographs documenting Indiana University alumnus Tom Fox's battle with AIDS in the late 1980s will hang in the Grand Hall of Maxwell Hall on the Indiana University-Bloomington campus.
"Wild Horse Running: The Courageous Journey of Tom Fox"presented by IU's Kinsey Institute in conjunction with the IU Cook Center for Public Arts and Humanities housed in Maxwell Hallwill run from Aug. 5 through Friday, Sept. 23. It is free to the public.
On Sept. 23, a reception is planned at 5 p.m., followed at 6 p.m. with a program. Photojournalist Michael A. Schwarz and medical reporter Steve Sternberg will speak at the reception about their experiences as they covered Fox's final months for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Their feature, which was published in an 18-page special section titled "When AIDS Come Home," forms the basis of the exhibition and accompanying catalog.
This summer will mark 33 years since the death of Fox, who graduated from Bloomington High School South and Indiana University. His late parents, Robert and Doris Fox, set the exhibition in motion in 2019 when they donated more than 230 photographs and other memorabilia Schwarz had given them to the Kinsey Institute. The collection was part of a virtual exhibition in 2020 and includes a photograph of Fox on his death bed, surrounded by his grief-stricken family. The photo became an iconic image of the early days of the AIDS epidemic.
