"When my dad brought this poster project to my attention I was first a bit skeptical about it but quickly got excited. The thought of other people seeing my drawings and paintings intimidated me so I pushed it to the back of my mind. After awhile though, I started to think about the experience that I would gain from it which means so much to me. A chance to show other people, to show not just a piece of art work, but also a piece of me and for a good cause as well. I looked more into the project and the more I did the more interested I became."
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.
