AIDS Memorial Quilt in San Francisco for Valentine's Day

Merchants and advocates are in talks with the family that owns the vacant Market and Noe Center near the Castro neighborhood in San Francisco to put on public view 40 sections of the AIDS Memorial Quilt during the week of Valentine’s Day, The Bay Area Reporter (BAR) reports. Roughly 320 individual panels stored locally would be showcased. Organizers said it would be the largest quilt display in the city since the NAMES Project Foundation, the nonprofit that cares for the quilt, closed its Castro workshop on Market Street in 1999 and relocated to Atlanta in 2000. According to NAMES, the quilt now weighs in at 54 tons and includes more than 47,000 panels dedicated in memory of more than 90,000 individuals.
