We already knew how amazing our artist Joe Norman is, but now the world is getting a bigger glimpse of his generous spirit. He has been creating 3D printed ppe and ventilator parts to maximize the use of a ventilator for multiple patients at hospitals with limited equipment and resources.
"Several weeks ago, I was working on four large public art placements in three different states in the western US. Since then, I and the various public art agencies have decided to put those projects on hold so they could focus (rightly) on the health of their communities. And, to be honest, there are more important things in my life right now than making sculpture.
Specifically, there are thousands upon thousands of people dying scared and alone, isolated from their loved ones in hospitals across the country. I simply can't justify working on my own art when I have the ability to do something about that. Anyone interested in helping can visit make4covid.co and makersunite.co for more information." - Joe Norman
