The Renaissance Center will observe World AIDS Day by again hosting panels of the AIDS Memorial Quilt in a reception Sunday, Dec. 2. The free reception 6-9 pm will feature a performance by Nashville in Harmony at 7:00. This year’s quilt display will include panels honoring several Nashville residents who have died from AIDS, including Jeffrey Wilbanks, Stephen Smith and Ken Friedman, who was known as entertainer Diana Hutton. Established in 1987 by The NAMES Project Foundation, the AIDS Memorial Quilt has grown to more than 48,000 individual 3X6-foot panels commemorating victims of the auto-immune disease. It is the largest community art project in the world and panels are on tour throughout the year to promote AIDS awareness. Nashville in Harmony is a 102-member chorus comprised of member and supporters of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community in Middle Tennessee. It is directed by Don Schlosser and performs all kinds of music, including classical, pop, swing and more. World AIDS Day is observed every year on Dec. 1. For more information on the Dec. 2 observance at The Renaissance Center, call 740-5600 or visit www.rcenter.org.
