Featured Opportunity: COVID-19 Memorial

Fairfax County, Virginia, is a roughly 400-square miles jurisdiction that is home to a very diverse population of approximately 1.2 million people. The scale of COVID-19 and its impact on the communities of Fairfax County, as well as the impact on a County workforce that responded to the public health emergency, are worthy of memorialization. The County has identified a location for a significant public artwork that will commemorate the suffering of people in the pandemic as well as the heroism of the people who responded to the emergency. An existing memorial plaza will be utilized for the placement of a central artwork that commemorates the experience of COVID-19 in Fairfax County. Application deadline: April 12, 2023.

An information session was held on February 1 at 3PM. Click here to watch recording.
