In America: Remember is a public art exhibition being held at the National Mall that displays 660,000 white flags to honor the people in America who have been lost due to COVID-19. Minuteman Press in Bethesda, Maryland, is a partner for the exhibition, providing printed message cards from people all over the country who are paying tribute to loved ones through the In America website.
“We are glad to be able to do our part to help this art exhibition,” says Leslie Klein, owner of Minuteman Press, Bethesda. “Every day, we receive all of the messages that were submitted through the In America website and we print them up on 11″ X 17″ sheets to create 4.25″ X 5.5″ cards. Every night, I drop off the finished cards to one of the volunteers, and then they are transcribed onto the flags by another group of volunteers.”
Klein adds, “This is a total team effort and we are proud to be partners in such an important and moving exhibition. Our hearts go out to those who have been lost and their families.”
The exhibition was open for public participation from Sept. 17 through Oct. 3 — weekdays from 10 a.m. to sunset and weekends from 9 a.m. to sunset. For more information, visit https://www.inamericaflags.org.
