Class notes

Sections of the internationally celebrated AIDS Memorial Quilt — the 54 ton, handmade tapestry that stands as a memorial to more than 94,000 individuals lost to AIDS — was on view in Aragon High School’s student lunchroom in San Mateo in March. Established in 1987, The NAMES Project Foundation is the international organization that is the custodian of The AIDS Memorial Quilt. The quilt is composed of more than 48,000 individual 3 foot by 6 foot panels, each one commemorating the life of someone who has died of AIDS. These panels come from every state in the nation, every corner of the globe and they have been sewn by hundreds of thousands of friends, lovers and family members into this epic memorial, the largest piece of ongoing community art in the world.
