    A Burma-shave style sign project located in my front yard. Unfortunately, Union County, IL has gone from red zone to purple since posting this sign project in December 2020.

  • COVID 19 SIGN PROJECT #1

    COVID 19 SIGN PROJECT #1

    I live in a wonderful rural town in Union County in Southern Illinois. For a small population, we have had an unusually large number of COVID-19 cases and 24 deaths. Like the rest of the country our town is strongly divided -- leaning heavily conservative. There is major resistance to following protocols, especially wearing masks. I created this series of Burma-Shave like signs to try to encourage and communicate with my neighbors.
