The Quilt transforms statistics into souls, stigma into understanding, and complacency into action.

When I speak about Memory Quilts, I always credit the AIDS quilt for putting the idea of quilting a memory back on the American map.

This July all 48,000 panels will be available for public to view throughout the D.C region in more than 60 distinct displays over the course of 31 days in more than 50 locations.

Pittsburgh-based fiber artist, Louise Silk, creates art that combines aesthetics and functionality with meaning and memories.
