Overview

“Through creativity and imagination, we find our identity and our reservoir of healing.”

Project Art Heals Utah is a collaborative mosaic art project using empty COVID-19 vaccine vials, clean healthcare waste from University of Utah patient care areas, and physical and virtual mementos donated by those that have suffered loss due to COVID-19. 

Utah is the epicenter for the project, but it is all-inclusive for anyone feeling compelled to contribute.
