May 1 will be day one of a 31-day trip across the country with a 7-foot cocktail glass. The sculpture, entitled, This Aint No Cocktail Party’, is made up of almost 2000 pill bottles. It is astounding to think that this is about the number of bottles of pills that I have used since 1987 – to stay alive and energized! We, westerners, consume even medically. You can follow the glass’s progress at http://peggyfrank.blogspot.ca/.
Creating the glass involves thinking about life with HIV, and at communities across the country I’d love to carry on Cocktail Glass inspired conversations. I also have the film ‘Positive Women Exposing Injustice to provoke further chat. If you would like to gather a few people in your town to meet the glass, I can be contacted at [email protected]. There is also a Facebook Page – Cross Canada Cocktail Tour.
