According to The NAMES Project Foundation website, “The Quilt was conceived in November of 1985 by long-time San Francisco gay rights activist Cleve Jones…Today the Quilt is a powerful visual reminder of the AIDS pandemic. More than 48,000 individual 3-by-6-foot memorial panels — most commemorating the life of someone who has died of AIDS — have been sewn together by friends, lovers and family members.” More information may be found at www.aidsquilt.org.
