Featured Artists

Effingham Public Library is pleased to welcome local artists, Tytia Habing, Abby Hartke, and Liz Jackson.

As part of a state-wide campaign, these three artists were commissioned by the Art Alliance of Illinois to create art that promotes COVID-19 vaccinations.

The artists all chose to work in a digital format and released their work on their Instagram pages in mid-July.

Tytia’s work is themed: Who are You Getting Vaccinated for? Abby approached the project with a “Rosie the Riveter” look and feel while Liz used the theme “Return to Your Passions” – which highlights young women going back to coffee shops, bookstores—returning to what they enjoy.

Artwork will be displayed in the Art Gallery until August 27.

For more information about the Art Gallery please contact Assistant Director Johnna Schultz at johnna@effinghamlibrary.org
