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."
