As deaths surpass 680,000 people, a new, temporary, art installation means to provide a stark visual reminder of the scale of that human disaster as well as an opportunity to honor lives lost.

The installation is located on Washington D.C.’s Mall and covers over 20 acres of land, with one white flag planted for each death from COVID in the US. There are 3.8 miles of pathways through the field of flags, with benches for people to sit and reflect. The effect is staggering.
