Arts Quincy has partnered with Arts Alliance Illinois to promote vaccinations! Local artists have answered a call to help combat vaccine hesitancy.
Artwork completed include a live artist demonstration during a vaccination clinic at QFest in June 2021. Another artist is installing mural panels at the Adams County Health Department based off the drawing of a local student. A direct mail and poster campaign is also underway with the health department.
The grant is part of a state-wide effort to use art as a way to communicate the importance of COVID-19 vaccines so we can get back to in-person arts activities. Artists in 24 regions across Illinois are creating over 72 pro-vaccination projects this summer since vaccines are widely available.
