Bob Goldstein’s Posters featured on The Well!

April 14, 2022

UNC Biology’s Dr. Bob Goldstein’s posters have been featured in the article, “‘Collecting COVID’ exhibit highlights material from library archive” from UNC’s The Well! From the article: “Bob Goldstein, James L. Peacock III Distinguished Professor of biology in the College of Arts & Sciences, created public service announcement posters that were displayed throughout Chapel Hill and Carrboro. One looks like the classic Uncle Sam ‘I want you’ poster, with a finger pointing at the viewer encouraging them to stand more than 6 feet apart. Another poster features Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, depicted above the words ‘Pray for us Saint Anthony.'”
