Capturing COVID-19: The Posters of Amitabh Verma
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Amitabh Verma, associate professor in the University of Georgia’s College of Environment and Design, turned his talents to a new kind of art: posters to promote shelter-in-place guidelines, mask wearing, and other safe practices. By injecting humor and emphasizing graphics over text, Verma’s posters encourage healthy practices using well-known imagery like Rosie the Riveter, da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, and Egyptian hieroglyphs to communicate a modern message with classic flavor.
This exhibit displays nine of Verma's creations, as well as information about the Hargrett Library's COVID-19 collecting initiative.
