The Hero Art Project - Portraits of Healthcare Workers Exhibit

Event dates: Oct 10, 2020 - Oct 25, 2020

Description: The Hero Art Project, an exhibit of portraits of Healthcare Workers who have passed away while fighting Covid:19. The project, which was initiated this past summer and opened 10.10.20 at The Big Screen Plaza in NYC bringing together the families of these fallen healthcare workers from around the world (see photos and names below).

This beautiful project continues as it has brought so much needed healing to both the art and health communities as well as their families. We are now proud to announce that the exhibit has been extended, as it transfers to the windows of Ideal Glass Studios on 9 West 8th Street in NYC until October 25th, 2020.

Given the very public nature of the screen, our art collective wanted to give back to the heroic communities that have been on the frontlines, hence The Hero Art Project was conceived, featuring artists from around the world (see the full list below). This public tribute is especially poignant as many of the families were not allowed to have public funerals and the physical comfort of many of their loved ones during the lockdown. It is our hope that the art will convey the human lives and stories behind the statistics.

Currently, there are almost 40 portraits completed. However, Covid has taken the lives of almost 1000 healthcare workers worldwide. The current plan is to continue matching families and artists to create more portraits of these brave individuals and then hold a larger public exhibit during World Health Worker Week in April 2021 on multiple screens around the US and the world. Please let us know if you can spread the word.
