The Adventure of the Pandemic Posts

Presented by Tim Johnson, Curator, Sherlock Holmes Collections 

The COVID-19 pandemic offered an opportunity to share artwork on social media from the Sherlock Holmes Collections by renowned illustrator, Frederic Dorr Steele. What started out as a simple “work from home” exercise in sharing soon turned into a chance to boost morale, inspire action, and subtly comment on current events. Some of the posts and art will be shared, along with the evolution of these communications, and how they were received by followers on social media.
