Artist statement

Sonia Vasquez is an artist living and working out of Manitowoc, Wisconsin. She primarily works in oils, but often branches out to other media. A large portion of her work is dedicated to social issues and representation. She seeks to tell stories and share experiences historically excluded from the art world.

Her love of 19th century fashion, art, and design mixed with contemporary ideas and issues have become a theme throughout Vasquez’s work. For this piece, she was particularly inspired by Victorian advertisements and medicine - imagining what a Covid vaccine poster might look like in the 19th century. Encouraging more people to get and have access to vaccines is important to Vasquez and she hopes she’s able to reach broader audiences though the piece.

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.
