AICA 2017 First Place winner In the Public Memorials category, this memorial monument was designed by Cal Christensen. Commemorating Darcelle XV, a legendary performer and tireless advocate for AIDS awareness and support in Oregon, the granite monument will serve as a way to honor all Oregonians who have lost their lives to HIV/AIDS and also to appreciate those who have cared for impacted individuals and their loved ones. The memorial features two large gray granite spires encasing a red granite ribbon, which is symbolic of people living with HIV/AIDS. The base the memorial sits on is shaped like the outline of the state of Oregon.
