The Boston Globe asked artists, “How do we memorialize the pandemic?”
The newspaper’s Opinion page invited artists to imagine public art projects that could create space to “mourn loved ones and… comprehend the enormity of the pandemic.” From the Globe:
As the United States nears its one millionth COVID-19-related death, artists, architects, and community leaders are calling for a permanent memorial to honor all those touched by COVID and to ensure their pain is never forgotten. Fully realizing the pandemic is far from over, Globe Opinion asked several artists for their vision of what a COVID memorial could look like.
