Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains the Signs in the Windows: A San Francisco COVID Community Time Capsule art project, which was created by artist Hazel O'Neil in response to a call for submissions by SFAC, supported by SFPL. It is the result of a 9-month process of conducting interviews and translating first-person accounts of the pandemic into a roughly chronological narrative accompanying 80 original illustrations drawn by O'Neil. A digitial copy of this project is available online at: https://oneilhazel.wixsite.com/covidtimecapsule.
Hazel O'Neil is a visual artist, storyteller, and at the time of this writing, an urban planning master's student at MIT. She has done work for NPR Next Generation Radio, KUT Austin 90.5 FM, Foster Care Film, and the Sunset Beacon/Richmond Review. She has contributed to a number of animated films as a storyboard artist and animator.
