About the public arts project
Developed in partnership with The Center at Sierra Health Foundation, the California COVID-19 Public Arts Project is designed to raise awareness of critical actions Californians have taken to help stop the spread of COVID-19 — and to encourage people to continue those practices — such as wearing a mask, washing hands, physical distancing, and getting vaccinated.
