Shadowboxes

Stepping inside the Lifeline of Ohio office, the ripple symbolism continues in the carpet, lighting and sage green signage panels. Signs of life and regrowth can be found in the wallpaper that leads to the wall where the donation process is stripped to its simplest elements: Commit. Connect. Continue.

As visitors continue to the conference center atrium, they are greeted by an ever-changing memorial installation on the long wall. Rows of 48 shadow boxes flow out of a large ripple on the wall, highlighting individual stories of donation. Each inset box memorializes a donor with a letter, photo, and/or memento selected by his or her family. Outset boxes feature photos of transplant recipients. The boxes serve as both a memorial and a celebration to the ripple started by each gift of life.

This gallery will continually change as we share new stories. If your loved one was an organ, eye or tissue donor with Lifeline of Ohio and you are interested in creating a box to remember them, contact

Juli Kunselman at 614-384-7375 or jkunselman@lifelineofohio.org.
