The AIDS Memorial Quilt at Governor's Island in New York City

A large display of the AIDS Memorial Quilt will be free and open to the public on Governor’s Island in New York City, according to a joint statement by The NAMES Project Foundation, the custodian of the Quilt; Kiehl’s Since 1851, the presenting sponsor; and amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, the beneficiary of Kiehl’s LifeRide, a charity motorcycle ride.

The LifeRide made a stop Monday, August 11, on Governor’s Island at the Quilt, which also will be on display Tuesday, August 12. The display features 260 12-foot-by-12-foot sections representing more than 2,000 panels honoring more than 5,000 individuals. A new panel created by Kiehl’s was unveiled. Many of the panels were created by and for New Yorkers. Fashion houses also created some of the panels.
