Mid-Hudson News reports that Ulster County is looking for artists with design proposals for a COVID-19 memorial. The COVID-19 Commemoration Commission will choose a sculpture as the centerpiece of a memorial garden at the Ulster County Fairground complex in New Paltz. Artists can submit designs through November 15. “This unprecedented time took its toll, but it also showed the shared strength of our communities who came together and persevered through the pandemic,” Acting County Executive Johanna Contreras said. “This project will culminate not just in a simple monument, but a testament to hope, unity, and a lasting message for future generations.” Designs can be submitted by mail or in person to the Office of the Ulster County Executive at 244 Fair Street, Kingston NY 12401, or through the Ulster County COVID-19 website.
