AIDS Quilt

July 25, 2012

Sections of the AIDS Quilt are in Washington this month to coincide with the International AIDS Conference. Seeing the Great Hall of the National Building Museum layered with dozens of quilt panels was powerful on its own; I can’t imagine the experience of seeing all 48,000 panels at once, as in 1996 when the full quilt was laid on the National Mall, stretching from the Washington Monument to the U.S. Capitol (snapshot).
