Quilt Project

World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day events are free and open to the public. Indoor masking is required and will help us protect the health of featured speakers and attendees.

AIDS Memorial Quilt Viewing, 2-7:30 p.m.

American folk art and quilting have significant history in the AIDS pandemic, beginning in the 1980s with the iconic presentation on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., and continuing today as panels are painstakingly created by hand to memorialize those who have died of AIDS-related complications. These serve to increase awareness of the disease and bring solace to survivors and are deeply moving for visitors to experience. A display of quilts sponsored by Quilt Project Gold Coast in collaboration with the NAMES Project Foundation will be on view in the Gilbert Sports and Fitness Center Lobby beginning at 2 p.m.
