Public Art Project: COVID-19 Commemoration

COVID-19 has claimed the lives of more than 7,800 Marylanders—including more than 1,200 Baltimore County residents—since Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski declared a local state of emergency on March 13, 2020. To honor the lives lost and all those impacted by COVID-19, the County is seeking a highly creative and dynamic public art concept representing hope, unity and healing. The public art will be installed at Lake Roland Park near walking and biking paths, and among acres of open space. The goal of this initiative is to create a finished public art project that will exist as a commemorative piece and meditative space to honor the memory of the toll from this global pandemic.
