Artworks Gallery exhibit in Public Health honors healthcare workers and people affected by COVID-19

Artworks Gallery will be displaying more than 1,000 hand-folded origami cranes in the public entrance of the Forsyth County Department of Health, starting Oct. 21. The collaboration is intended to honor healthcare workers and people affected by COVID-19.

Artworks members folded the cranes using coronavirus information forms, which are printed in languages from all over the world. According to Japanese tradition, folding 1,000 cranes can bring happiness and good luck.

The health department and Artworks are hoping the display can bring happiness, good luck and perhaps a little joy during a difficult time.
