Floral Heart Project honors lives lost to COVID in Milwaukee
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A heart made of red and orange flowers is now in place near the Milwaukee Art Museum at the lakefront. It's part of a nationwide effort to honor the memory of people who have died from coronavirus over the last 11-plus months.
"The Floral Heart Project" started in New York City, and it grew to the point where organizers planned to have 100 of the hearts in places across the country -- all on March 1.
"The goal of today is for people to see the hearts, reflect, grieve, process the last year and how COVID has really impacted all of our lives," Said Scott Rusch, general manager at Bloom Studios.
The display is made of up 2,000 carnations and two boxes of greens.
If you'd like to see it, Rusch expects The Floral Art Project to be at the Milwaukee Art Museum through Thursday, March 4.
