The UWL Art Gallery and National AIDS Memorial are partnering to bring six Quilt sections as part of ArtsFest 2023, the annual spring campus festival formerly called Creative Imperatives. This year’s theme “Beautiful Remedies for Today” will showcase the role of the arts in health and healing.

In 1995, around 130 3-foot by 6-foot panels from the AIDS Memorial Quilt were displayed in the Mitchell Hall Fieldhouse. UW-L recognizes FSPA's involvement in bringing the quilt to La Crosse in 1995.
