The Nebraska State Capitol halls have a new perspective on the COVID-19 pandemic.
Artists Bob Hall and Henry Payer worked with educators and scientists to create a series of comics about the global pandemic. They are on display in Nebraska's capitol building through the end of May.
The stories focus on three themes: the biology and social context of the COVID-19 virus; the relationship of wild animals, particularly bats, to the pandemic; and the impact of the pandemic on Tribal communities. These stories are available on worldofviruses.unl.edu for free download or as the comic book, C’RONA Pandemic Comics, published by the University of Nebraska Press.
This project was made possible with support from the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, the University of Nebraska–Lincoln Libraries, the University of Nebraska State Museum, Program in Graphic Design, School of Natural Resources, and the Nebraska Commission on Indian Affairs.
