AIDS Quilt Display

Event Series Event Series (See All)

June 17, 2023 @ 1:00 pm 5:00 pm

The AIDS Quilt Display is sponsored by Polk County Board of Supervisors with the support of Hoyt Sherman Place.

Join Capital City Pride and Hoyt Sherman for the AIDS Quilt display on June 16th and 17th at Hoyt Sherman Place. Six 12’x12′ quilt panels of Iowans will be displayed as a teaching tool to help educate people about HIV/AIDS, its continued impact today, and to remember the 700,000 U.S. lives lost in the four decades since the first cases were reported. Quilt displays help support local HIV/AIDS service organizations, LGBTQ+ centers, and raise awareness about the issues of health and social justice. Additional programming will accompany the display.
