The Covid-19 Commemoration Commission was established in March 2022. The Commission, made up of first responders, educators, labor union members, and food service workers, has been tasked with developing a public memorial to honor our Ulster County communities and the impact of Covid-19. This effort has multiple prongs of focus, including on front line workers who put their lives on the line during the pandemic, community members who were lost, as well as the spirit of unity as we banded together to help our fellow neighbors.
We invite you to submit a design proposal for the sculpture that will become the centerpiece for a memorial garden, which will include a space for rest and reflection, and interpretive signage linked to a comprehensive website that will feature the stories of front-line workers and other members of the community.
The submission date has been extended through December 15, 2022.
