A new exhibit, "Sewn in Memory," features over a dozen quilt panels originally made in the 1980s and early '90s for the National AIDS Memorial Quilt, in Washington, DC. Each of the panels commemorates a person who died of AIDS, or of an AIDS-related ailment. Created with Greater Community AIDS Project of Central Illinois (GCAP). See the Spurlock website for museum hours of operation. Please note that the museum is closed on University holidays.
