Crow Museum of Asian Art

AIDS Memorial Quilt Installation
Since 1987, the AIDS Memorial Quilt celebrates and memorializes the lives of those who have passed away from HIV/AIDS complications. The Quilt remains the largest community art project in the world. It has grown to more than 49,000 panels on 5.956 blocks. Each block is 12 x 12 feet and made up of 8 separate panels. After decades of stewardship from the NAMES Project Foundation, the Quilt is now cared for by the National AIDS Memorial (NAM).
The Crow Museum of Asian Art and The University of Texas at Dallas School of Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication will display three quilts from the collection of the AIDS Memorial Quilt.  Two of the quilts include panels memorializing those in the Asian communities who have passed from HIV/AIDS complications. An additional quilt that includes a panel from local Dallas citizen and activist Duane Kearns Puryear will also be on view.
These three quilts will be on display in Gallery III of the Crow Museum of Asian Art from June 18 through June 30, 2021.

AIDS Quilt Touch Media System Installation
The AIDS Quilt Touch Media System (AQT) is a research project of the Public Interactives Research Lab at the School of Arts, Technology and Emerging Communication at UT Dallas and the National AIDS Memorial. As the AIDS Memorial Quilt would require more than 18 football fields of space if it were to be physically displayed in its entirety, the AQT is the only way to be able to see and experience the entire Quilt at once. AQT permits users to zoom in and out, from a bird’s-eye view of the entire quilt to a larger-than-life size examination of individual memorials. See and explore the Quilt and search for names and blocks using AQT technology at https://www.aidsmemorial.org/interactive-aids-quilt.

The AQT will be an interactive installation in Gallery III of the Crow Museum of Asian Art from June 18 through June 30, 2021.
