Internationally acclaimed artist Barton Lidice Benes was known for addressing the AIDS epidemic through his work. He developed special ties to Grand Forks, ND when, in 1993, the North Dakota Museum of Art showed work that other galleries considered too controversial to show. Benes passed away in 2012, leaving the contents of his apartment as well as his cremated remains to the Museum to be installed as a permanent exhibition.
