ORONO, Maine (AP) — Students at University of Maine are making art to encourage equal distribution of coronavirus vaccines.

The students are intermedia students working on a campaign led by Intermedia MFA Program Director Susan Smith. The university said about 20 students are developing “various media that reinforce the hardships of the pandemic and encourage spectators to help bring about its end through inoculation.”

The university said the campaign is called “Creativity vs. COVID.” The student artists are using their art to encourage use of the vaccines as well as to call for equitable distribution of doses, the school said.

The university said some of the artists will use projectors to display their work on the front of Fogler Library and New Balance Field House on the night of April 2. Other students are working on a postcard campaign entitled “The Outbreak Diaries.”
