Mineral Point is hosting its third annual Pride Celebration August 8th to the 10th. Like past years, there will be great music, food, and activities all weekend long (including salsa music and dancing lessons Friday night, and two drag shows on Saturday) but this year is particularly special because Boyoyoboy Gallery will be hosting a display of sections of the AIDS Memorial Quilt.
The AIDS Memorial Quilt began with a single 3 x 6 foot panel created in San Francisco in 1987. Today, The Quilt is composed of more than 49,000 individual 3 x 6 foot panels, each one commemorating the life of someone who has died of AIDS. These panels come from every state in the nation, every corner of the globe and they have been sewn by hundreds of thousands of friends, lovers and family members into this epic memorial, the largest piece of ongoing community art in the world.
