Visual Arts Teacher Alison Safford Creates Medals to Thank Frontline Workers

Visual Arts Teacher Alison Safford is part of a global team of artists creating medals to thank frontline workers. 
The Hand Medal Project brings together artists from Korea, to Argentina, to Iceland with one mission in mind– to thank those who have been working in the front line during the pandemic. They are looking to connect with doctors. If you know anyone who works in the frontlines, Alison would love to connect with them and share these tokens of gratitude. Please contact Alison at
