Artwork (1.9 MB)


This poster was the final project in the spring 2020 semester of Graphic Design I (VAD 411), taught by Misty Thomas-Trout, assistant professor of art and design. Following the transition to all-remote learning on March 23, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, students in the class drew from data, health information, news coverage, personal reflections and other sources to create this work.

Artist statement: In creating this work, I was inspired by how the everyday objects that surrounded me in my life during quarantine took on qualities resembling the virus. For example, a clementine became the body of the virus, and star-shaped pins reminded me of the virus's spikes. I wanted to depict how the virus was becoming a shared experience, present in each of our daily lives.
