"I saw this poster project, and thought that it looked like a great opportunity! I am very passionate about art, and try to put my all into each one of my art pieces. I started 9th grade this year, and because of the pandemic I have been remote learning the whole year. Part of why I want to do this project so much, is because with covid, art has been my creative outlet. I’ve grown, and learned as an artist over the past year, as I’ve had a lot of time at home to explore new types of art and mediums. Being a part of this project would be an exciting challenge, and make a happy memory of this strange time."
About the project
The Wisconsin Historical Society's COVID-19 Poster Project is a series of posters designed and created by Wisconsin artists. 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.
Hope is what has helped us get through the toughest days of this pandemic. The story of the COVID-19 Pandemic did not end in July 2020 with the release of our last poster. New waves and variants continue to prolong its impact. Despite these hardships, we have found moments of hope that bring us together, even when we are apart. These messages, and new stories over the past year, are the focus of this next phase of posters.
