Roberto on his work: "In my practice I have always pursued a purpose to represent my views through art that can provide a positive impact that can bring communities together."


About the Project

The Wisconsin Historical Society's COVID-19 Poster Project is a series of 11 posters designed and created by Wisconsin artists. Starting in April of 2020, one poster will be released per week. Public information posters have long been a part of history.

Shelter in Place - by Keegan Onefoot-Wenkman

Shelter in Place

by Keegan Onefoot-Wenkman | April 13 | 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."
