AIDS Memorial Quilt

When: March 10-April 2 2010

More than two decades ago, a single activist, Cleve Jones, began creating the AIDS Memorial Quilt by inking the name of a friend on a square of fabric. Since then, the quilt has grown into the country's largest community arts project, with more than 47,000 squares memorializing loved ones lost to AIDS. Though the quilt is now too large to display in its entirety, you can see portions created locally, along with an exhibit that includes contributions from Pine Creek High School's "Eyes Wide Open" project. The free exhibit, sponsored by the Southern Colorado AIDS Project, is open today and every Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., through April 2 at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center (30 W. Dale St., csfineartscenter.org, s-cap.org). — Jill Thomas
