The AIDS Quilt

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

..August 1996.. ..Washington, DC..

The AIDS Quilt when it was shown on the National Mall in Washington, DC. It was unbelievably sad to see how massive it was. Each quilt was made for a person who has passed away from AIDS. The quilt was laid from the Capitol to the Washington Monument. A large amount of space.

The AIDS Quilt is the largest piece of community art ever shown. I’m not sure if it’s been displayed since I saw it in Washington, DC in 1996. But the enormous size of the project demonstrates who serious a problem AIDS still is.
