In recognition of World AIDS Day (Dec. 1), the Art History and Museum Professions program (AHMP) and Special Collections and College Archives (SPARC) will hold an event in which attendees can learn more about the ways former and current FIT communities honor members of the LGBTQ community in this 45-minute behind-the-scenes tour.

Highlights include an introduction to the beautiful designs crafted by George Stavrinos (1948-1990) and a showing of AIDS quilts made in memory of FIT community members who we lost to AIDS. Featured collections will include Tina Chow (1950-1992), Halston (1932-1990), Perry Ellis (1940-1986), Juan Ramos (1942-1995), Antonio Lopez (1943-1987), Willi Smith (1948-1987), Patrick Kelly (1954-1990), and Franco Moschino (1959-1994).

This event will be held on Nov. 30 and Dec. 5.

This event is for the FIT community only; you must register through Eventbrite as seats are limited.
