Shelter in Place - by Keegan Onefoot-Wenkman

Shelter in Place

by Keegan Onefoot-Wenkman | April 13 | WHS COVID-19 Poster Project

The work I produce is of thoughtful, selfless, greedy, raving, amazing, botched, happy, needy, revolutionary people, objects, ideas, animals, and insects. These are what I love and don’t want to forget. A stew of moments seen, heard, loved and missed; on the list of ingredients it would read “for growing more mature and wiser, be brazen and naïve."

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."

We Stand United by Cat Parra

We Stand United

by Cat Parra | May 20 | WHS COVID-19 Poster Project

Cat Parra is a Madison based comic artist and illustrator. Her work primarily explores themes of adventure and self discovery through the lens of historical fiction. In 2015 she co-founded Margins Publishing, a small press publisher focused on producing work by and about people of marginalized identities. About her piece, "I wanted this piece to reflect solidarity and community spirit. We each have a responsibility to do what we can to protect ourselves and neighbors. I’m sure while in isolation, many of us have never felt less like a community, but we’ve never had more need to act like one."
