Marking Lives COVID-19

Call to Artists


Deadline July 1, 2021
Sponsor Elizabeth Awalt
Location Online , FL


“Marking Lives COVID 19” is a collaborative community art project conceived by Concord-based visual artist Elizabeth Awalt. Born from a desire to acknowledge and commemorate lives lost in the U.S. to the COVID 19 pandemic, Awalt invites artists and community members to make 1,000 marks of any kind to create original artworks in the medium of his/her/their choice. Artworks are digitally documented and shared in a collective social media based tribute to lost loved ones. Once “Marking Lives COVID-19 has “marked” the majority of lives lost to COVID-19 in the U.S., it will serve as a memorial to this tragic era, similar to the powerful AIDS Memorial Quilt.

As this project grows in scope, any submissions to the digital tribute project will automatically be considered for any live exhibit opportunity in the future. Additional information is also found on Elizabeth’s website:
