Helene Ramsdell is continuing to emerge as an artist who speaks softly but takes the opportunity to express her feelings and opinions with a shout on paper. She has found Printmaking, screen printing in particular, to be her art form of choice for its accessibility: being printed on paper it can easily be hung in a gallery or on the street, making art available to all. This project speaks to that accessibility by combining a succinct message for the community with the approachability of the poster format.
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.
