Fine Arts Proudly Hosts AIDS Memorial Quilt Panels for World AIDS DayWorld AIDS Day is December 1st
Around the world nearly 36 million people are living with HIV. The virus continues to be a major public health issue, having claimed the lives of more than 39 million people since 1981. World AIDS Day is December 1st.
In June 1987, a group of strangers in San Francisco gathered to remember the names and lives of their loved ones that they feared history would forget. Their loved ones would be remembered with the first quilt panel, and soon their voices would swell to tens of thousands, calling for compassion and action in the age of HIV/AIDS.
The whole AIDS Memorial Quilt now consists of nearly 50,000 panels honoring people who have died from AIDS. Because of the huge size, it is no longer possible to display the whole quilt in a single location at once. UNM Truman Health Services and the Names Project Foundation are honored to display some of the voices of the people who lost their lives in the struggle against HIV/AIDS for World AIDS Day on the UNM campus. In the effort to continue to raise awareness, and to fight prejudice and stigma, panels from the Quilt will be on display at UNM in the Center for the Arts lobby and the Department of Art building.
