Floral Heart Project
BloomStudios was honored to be part of a national day of mourning for COVID-19 organized by The Floral Heart Project and Marked by Covid. Kristina Libby (the artist who created the Floral Heart Project) began the effort in New York City when she saw people losing loved ones to COVID-19 and grieving in isolation. To show love and support, she began laying heart shaped wreaths of flowers in public places.
Over the last year, 1800-Flowers and BloomStudios got involved to help her grow and amplify the effort. On March 1st, a dedicated group of volunteers, Flower Farmers and Florists came together to support her in the effort to lay floral wreaths across the US for a nationwide event. 115 heart shaped floral arrangements were placed from Maine to California.
