Empty COVID-19 vaccine vials, clean medical waste, and other personal mementos make up the new art installation recently unveiled at University of Utah Hospital. The piece, titled Rise Up, was born from Project Art Heals Utah, which was created to commemorate experiences and losses related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The work is a collaboration between U of U Health physician Emily Hagn MD’06 and artist Heidi Calega, with special thanks to U of U Health, the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library, and the Salt Lake County Health Department.
