David Plunkert–The Visual Communi-gator, is the first in Herron's new series of exhibitions to examine the best of today's illustrators. With clients such as Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, Capital Records, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, ViacomCBS Domestic Media Networks, and Krispy Kreme, Plunkert's work has earned him recognition as one of the most innovative illustrators. The Visual Communi-gator shows his uniquely engaging vision through a variety of illustrations and studies, including a recent digital piece created for #COMBATCOVID, the city-wide public art campaign of Poster House in New York City.

Creativity vs. COVID: Ending the Pandemic for Good

A Virtual Exhibition
March 24 – May 9, 2021

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, researchers at universities and other publicly funded institutions have been working to develop tests, treatments and vaccines to better protect us and ease the public health crisis. An international collective of university students, artists and activists has also worked to ensure that these treatments are available to everyone. This innovative, virtual exhibition shares the compelling creative work of the Free the Vaccine for COVID-19 campaign – from poster designs to viral parody music videos. In doing so, it introduces audiences to key issues that limit access to medicine and provides robust methods that anyone can use to advocate for change from anywhere, especially at this time of social distancing.

Creativity vs. COVID is organized by Associate Professor Laura Holzman, Public Scholar of Curatorial Practices and Visual Art, IUPUI.
