TREASURE COAST -- More than likely, everybody knows somebody who has been affected by HIV.

Whether it's a family member, someone you went to school with, or even yourself, HIV has impacted the lives of everyone we know.

Some of those lives have been chronicled in a mobile Art Exhibition that is making its way to the Treasure Coast.

Faces of HIV depicts the lives of residents in Florida who are living with HIV and AIDS. The exhibit features portraits, video interviews, and journal writing. The exhibit has traveled the state and is now makes its Treasure Coast debut.

"The project tells the stories of Florida residents living with HIV and AIDS through captivating portraits, insightful interviews and poignant journal writing," said Tara Menendez, project spokeswoman.

"Participants of the project address how they became infected with HIV and first dealt with their diagnoses, as well as their personal relationships, effects of HIV on the body and more. The mobile art exhibit gives visitors an up close and personal glimpse into the lives of those living with HIV in hopes of promoting awareness and understanding about the disease."

On March 7 the exhibit will be on display at the Indian River County Health Department, 1900 27th Street Vero Beach, from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.

On March 8, the exhibit will be on display at the St. Lucie County Fair, 15601 West Midway Road, Fort Pierce, from noon - 7 p.m.
