The Coginchaug Art Department, in collaboration with the Library Media Center, has created a Memorial Mosaic to commemorate Connecticut residents killed by COVID-19. The mosaic was installed in the spring of 2021 in our LMC
The Memorial was inspired by past visual representations of loss such as the Vietnam Memorial and the AIDS quilt.
Comprised of 2x2-inch tiles illustrated by students in grades K-12, the mosaic contains numerous materials: collage, pencil, ink, paint, prints, marker.
The original goal was to have a 1-to-1 correspondence, where each tile represented one person lost to the virus. This goal proved elusive, as the state's casualty rate surpassed the available space. 
Our hope is that the Memorial will provide an opportunity for reflection, discussion and community.
