From Friday April 29, through Sunday, May 22, 2011 (excluding Mondays, when the Gallery is closed, and Thursday, May 5, during an all-day special event), the Albright-Knox will host a special viewing of the Lost Heroes Art Quilt, dedicated to soldiers fallen in Iraq and Afghanistan since September 11, 2001. The quilt was created by the artist Julie Feingold to illustrate the message "Without a Witness, They Will Disappear." An image of Captain Robert A. Bager (February 14, 1980–September 21, 2005), the son of Patti and William Bager of East Amherst, New York, represents the fallen from New York state. The quilt has been touring the United States since September 2009 and will stop in Buffalo before returning to Washington D.C. on September 11, 2011.
