Sewn in Memory: AIDS Quilt Panels from Central Illinois

2 p.m.

Opening reception: Sunday, January 30. Runs through Sunday, July 10.
Spurlock Museum

Sewn in Memory showcases panels originally made in the 1980s and early '90s by residents of Central Illinois for the national AIDS Memorial Quilt. As part of a course taught last fall by Charles "Stretch" Ledford, associate professor of journalism, in collaboration with Illinois Public Media, students produced a series of short documentaries chronicling those commemorated in some of the panels. Their work will be featured in the exhibit this spring. Student work will also be featured online at https://will.illinois.edu/sewninmemory.
