The John P. McGovern Museum of Health & Medical Science is hosting “Living Icons: A Commemoration of the Victims of Houston’s COVID-19 Pandemic,” a photo exhibit that features hundreds of Houston-area COVID-19 victims. Created by artist Joni Zavitsanos, the art installation memorializes those who have died as a result of the pandemic and gives us a glimpse of the human impact of this health crisis.
Living Icons connects us with the real people behind the pandemic numbers reported every day. Through the exhibit we learn more about who they are, and who we have lost as a community. It gives all of us an opportunity to join in honoring the victims and their families.
