About the Artist

Renée Graef has illustrated over 80 children's books, including the "Kirsten" books (American Girl), books in the "My First Little House" program (Laura Ingalls Wilder) and "B is for Badger; A Wisconsin Alphabet." She splits her time between Milwaukee and Los Angeles.


Renée is thrilled to work on her second children's book for the Wisconsin Historical Society Press with author, Barbara Joosse. Her first WHSP book was "Sport: Ship Dog of the Great Lakes" by Pam Cameron. She is also working on the children's book series, "Lulu and Rocky Adventures" (with Barbara Joosse), which debuted with "Lulu and Rocky in Milwaukee".


For the Covid-19 Poster Project, Renée was inspired by an experiment that tested the effect of "Wash your Hands" signs in public restrooms. The results showed that people do indeed wash their hands longer with the displayed signs. She is making the four posters (from the one shown poster) available for free downloads in an effort to decrease the spread of the Coronavirus. The 8.5" x 11" printables can be displayed in restrooms in schools, daycares, work and home.


About the Project

The Wisconsin Historical Society's COVID-19 Poster Project is a series of 11 posters designed and created by Wisconsin artists. Starting in April of 2020, one poster will be released per week. Public information posters have long been a part of history.


This project features Wisconsin artists and their representations of the COVID-19 pandemic through a new, relevant public information poster. These posters, created by Wisconsin artists during the COVID-19 pandemic, will become part of the collections at the Society where they can be viewed and appreciated by future generations.

Keep Your Distance - Poster by Yeonhee Cheong

Social Kindness

by Yeonhee Cheong | May 13 | WHS COVID-19 Poster Project

Yeonhee Cheong is a visual artist who studies the social language of women’s bodies and outfits. She is a lecturer at Design Studies department of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Describing her poster, she reflected that "the war against COVID-19 virus has disrupted the conventional way of how we unite to fight. We should keep apart and protect selves from others, in order to protect others as well. Though against our natural instinct, this is the knowledgeable and effective way to win this war that everyone should follow."
