Yeonhee Cheong's Social Kindness Poster, depicting two people wearing masks facing each other with the words Social Kindness Protects Others & Yourself

Social Kindness | Cheong

by Yeonhee Cheong | May 13, 2020 | 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."

Keegen Onefoot Wenkman's Shelter in Place Poster, depicting a large lightouse and home in vibrant two town, loosely referencing Christina's World.

Shelter in Place | Onefoot-Wenkman

by Keegan Onefoot-Wenkman | April 13, 2020 | 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."
