During the COVID-19 pandemic, I started to experiment with public art as a means of dealing with my own trauma and grief. I wanted these pieces alternatively to serve as a message of support for those grieving and to act as a public memorial when there was none.
The Floral Heart Project included over 200 installations, more than 200 volunteers and was instrumental in creating legislation to create a national COVID-19 Memorial Day. The project appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, ABC, NBC, PBS, and more. Pieces were on display at the Arizona Historical Museum, Wisconsin Museum of Art and Times Square, among others.
