Dr. Emily Hagn, an anesthesiologist at the University of Utah. She's been organizing a collaborative, sustainable mosaic art project using empty COVID-19 vaccine vials, clean healthcare waste, and physical and virtual mementos given by the public to represent losses, hardships, and experiences created by the COVID-19 pandemic.  

  • DONATE: Project Art Heals Utah needs your mementos and stories. "The main objective of the project is to create a means to collectively acknowledge and mourn the losses we have experienced due to the COVID-19 pandemic and to create a means to honor our shared resiliency. We invite you to contribute physical and virtual mementos to memorialize struggles and losses suffered due to the COVID-19 pandemic, to be included in the art piece. There is no hierarchy of grief due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Whatever you are feeling is real and we encourage you to participate.  Physical mementos should be hard-surfaced.  Flat items smaller than 1-2 inches work best.

    Utah is the epicenter for the project, but it is all-inclusive for anyone feeling compelled to contribute." Deadline: April 20, 2022.

Sue Robbins of Equality Utah's Transgender Advisory Council talked about the special legislative session called for Friday to override Governor Cox’s veto of H.B. 11 Fourth Substitute -- Student Eligibility in Interscholastic Activities.
