The Hazleton Art League is a proud partner of NEPA Regional HIV Services’ AIDS Memorial Quilt Tour. From 1-4pm, Saturday, June 1, there will be a program for people to learn more about the quilt’s creation, message, and impact.

After the creation of the National AIDS Memorial Quilt by Cleve Jones in 1985, the NEPA community created its own HIV Memorial Quilt in 2009, handmade by members of the Northeast Regional AIDS Coalition. This is your chance to see our local AIDS Memorial Quilt in person in honor of Pride Month at The Hayden Family Center for the Arts.

The exhibition of the Memorial Quilt will be joined by works of local artists from the Cranberry Quilters’ Guild and others. Quilts and wall hangings will be available for purchase. The exhibition will run for two days only–Saturday, June 1 through Sunday, June 2 from 1-4pm
