Taller versions of this prototype will be a defining feature of STORIES: The AIDS Monument.

‘Trace’ Prototype Displayed at 2021 World AIDS Day event

On Dec. 1, 2021, FAM commemorated World AIDS Day with an event in West Hollywood Park, where attendees were able to view a miniature protoype of the future AIDS Monument’s Traces.  The Traces will be a defining feature of The Monument.

The Monument will include more than 200 of these Traces, which will tower above us at a height of 15 feet.  The Traces will lightly touch the ground and pierce the sky.

The bronze surface of the Traces will have a variable, organic quality, and each Trace will have a slightly different color.  In that way, like a person, each Trace will be unique, although the shape of each Trace will be consistent.
