The BODEGA de la Familia
HIV/AIDS Mural Project

New York, New York

In September 2002, as part of the Minority HIV Prevention Initiative, La Bodega brought Xavier Cortada, a world-renowned muralist, to the storefront to create an HIV/AIDS mural with neighborhood residents. The result is a powerful testimony to the power of family and community to be parts of the solution to the HIV/AIDS pandemic.
