About the Rose River Memorial at OCMA: Internationally recognized artist Marcos Lutyens is creating the OC Rose River Memorial to remember those who have passed away from COVID-19 in Orange County. Join in this collaborative effort to create 3,000 hand-made roses for a memorial that visualizes our collective loss and generates community healing. As part of a nationwide COVID-19 Memorial Day, Lutyens will combine community-made roses into a memorial that will be on view outside OCMA from Monday, March 1 through Sunday, March 7.
