Unforgotten: Our Loved Ones Lost to Overdose
Unforgotten is public art project that you can create in your own community…or join in with ours here in the nation’s capital. It honors those who have died from overdose and visibly demonstrates the toll this epidemic is having on our society.
The concept is simple—jeans offer a common thread and their varying hues reflect the shades of our humanity. Ready-made strands allow viewers to add the names of those whom they have lost. Empty spots along these strands provide an opportunity for adding the pocket from a loved one’s jeans.
If you would like to have us add the name of your loved one to our Washington, DC strands, which will be displayed throughout the city and its surrounding areas in advance of International Overdose Awareness Day, please fill out the form below.
The intention is to create strands this year throughout the United States and have them all displayed in Washington, DC in 2020.
