AIDS Memorial Quilt Decorating: McClung Museum, Friday, November 12 & Wednesday, December 1, 1-3pm
In observance of World AIDS Day on December 1st, the McClung Museum partnered with UT’s Pride Center to showcase a block from the AIDS Memorial Quilt. The museum is one location in a cross-campus display that serves to honor those who were lost in the HIV pandemic. By displaying the Quilt, the museum and its partners hope raise awareness of the ongoing fight against the stigma of HIV and for equitable treatment for the those living with the disease.
For the McClung, block 1728 was chosen because one of the panels was created by the theater community at UT.
