AIHA's new LEGO® logo was initially conceived as a community building project that was to take place during AIHce EXP 2020 in Atlanta. Because of the global pandemic, the live conference was canceled. However, the mosaic project was relocated to AIHA's Virginia headquarters, where the logo was built onsite and then mounted in the office lobby. The project was not canceled because the art creation, delivery, and installation remained a cost-effective solution to having a custom logo made and mounted. Additionally, AIHA acquired three times the number of limited edition minikits by saving on the travel costs to Atlanta; instead of 20 numbered kits, 60 were produced for the Association to use for promotional purposes.
AIHA also commissioned the creation of smaller mosaics of the Association's three past logos. These framed pieces were initially designated for a silent auction to benefit the AIHFoundation. Currently, they remain onsite at the AIHA national office. The art pieces will be auctioned off for the AIHF in the future.
