Sonia Vasquez is an artist living and working out of Manitowoc, Wisconsin. For this piece, she was inspired by Victorian advertisements and medicine - imagining what a Covid vaccine poster might look like in the 19th century.
The text on this poster is meant to evoke hope, comfort, and relief from the pressure to “get back to normal” in the face of great loss. The artist hopes this piece will help people meet their grief with acceptance while also finding strength in the knowledge that it will not last forever.
