New Orleans, LA
United States
Washington Square Park New Orleans AIDS Memorial since 30 November 2008
The Memorial consists of a series of glass discs depicting the cast faces of a number of individuals, some of whom are HIV infected and who represent the many faces of AIDS in this region. Tragically, some of the individuals whose faces were cast for the Memorial have since died of the disease. The Memorial site will be paved with stones engraved with the names of some of those who have died of the disease or honoring individuals for their efforts in fighting AIDS.

Because the Tulane School of Architecture has taken the AIDS Memorial on as a school project, it has been possible to keep the costs to a minimum.

The New Orleans AIDS Memorial was dedicated on Sunday, November 30, 2008 in Washington Square Park. The neighborhood surrounding Washington Square was very much the epicenter of the AIDS epidemic in its early days in Louisiana.
