The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History collected 24 of the white plastic flags from the public art installation designed by artist Suzanne Brennan Firstenberg. The “In America…How Could This Happen.” installation outside of RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. was designed to honor and remember the lives lost in the U.S. to COVID-19. The museum added the flags to its collection as part of its efforts to collect artifacts related to the discovery, response and loss that has continued as a result of COVID-19.
