Wild Horse Running: The Courageous Journey of Tom Fox
Tom Fox was a Bloomington native and Indiana University alumnus who died from AIDS on July 11, 1989. His legacy lives on in the form of deeply touching photographs that illustrate definitive moments throughout his less than two-year struggle with the illness. The photographs, taken by photojournalist Michael A. Schwarz, were published alongside a piece written by journalist Steve Sternberg, who was then a medical writer for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, chronicling Fox's experiences, travels, friendships, struggles and eventual death.
The 16-page story and collection of photographs, titled "When AIDS Comes Home," became widely recognized and was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize.
Wild Horse Running: The Courageous Journey of Tom Fox is sponsored by IU's Kinsey Institute.
Exhibit will run from August 5th through September 23rd, 2022.
