AIDS Quilt on display at CCU's Myrtle Beach Center

The AIDS Memorial Quilt is on display this week at Coastal Carolina University's Myrtle Beach Education Center from 1 to 7 p.m. daily through Saturday, Dec. 3. The exhibit, which is in room 108 at the center at 79th Avenue North and U.S. 17 Bypass, is free and open to the public.

A candlelight vigil will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 1, outside the center to commemorate those who have died.

The display includes 160 panels, each 12 feet square. A typical block consists of eight individual three feet by six feet panels sewn together. The display shows only a portion of the 40,000 colorful panels that make up the Quilt, and almost each memorializes the life of a person lost to AIDS.

Founded in 1987, The AIDS Memorial Quilt is a poignant memorial, a powerful tool for use in preventing new HIV infections, and the largest ongoing community arts project in the world.

For more information, call Darrell Senter, Coastal AIDS Quilt Project chairman, at 843-902-8752.
