The Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum represents Washington, D.C., as one of more than 80 iconic landmarks, including New York’s Empire State Building, the London Eye and the Sydney Opera House, that will join (RED), an initiative to fight the AIDS pandemic in Africa, in marking World AIDS Day on the evening of Dec. 1. The World AIDS Day campaign highlights the goal of ending mother-to-child transmission of HIV by 2015.

The north and east facades of the Hirshhorn’s striking Gordon Bunshaft-designed building will be illuminated in red from 4 p.m. to midnight. The best views and photo opportunities will be from the National Mall, Jefferson Drive and Seventh Street.
