To help curb the spread and support public health guidelines, the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, with support from the University of Oregon's Office of the President and Division of Equity & Inclusion, is organizing local installations from RESIST COVID | TAKE 6!, a public art campaign by nationally renowned, Oregon-born artist Carrie Mae Weems. We invite you to join us in this initiative that combines community health, art, and work for racial justice in a powerful way. 

In RESIST COVID | TAKE 6!, Weems applies the visual language of advertising, combining photographs, text, and bold graphics to dispel myths about COVID-19 and promote known preventive measures. Take 6’ refers to the recommended social distance of six feet. Through billboards, posters, lawn signs, and reusable totes, RESIST COVID | TAKE 6! brings awareness to the greater impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Black, brown, and Indigenous communities. This multilingual project delivers hope and no-nonsense practical advice to stop the spread.
