  • Honoring Kenny Williams

    On May 20, 2012, a community of friends gathered in Atlanta, Georgia, to celebrate the life of Kenny Williams, a dear friend lost to the AIDS pandemic. On that day, they put the finishing touches on a series of quilt panels representing different aspects of Kenny's life. These panels will be dedicated in D.C. during the Festival and displayed on the National Mall as part of the Creativity and Crisis Festival program.
