Mural by Joseph Pope III depicting Rosie the Riveter, a large 6, and a line graph. The graph is illustrating the coronavirus cases 'curve' if we stay inside and listen to CDC guidelines vs. not-listening. Rosie the Riveter is featured with a twist to her original saying "We can do it!". The large 6 represents the magic number of staying 6 feet apart. “It’s not to be pessimistic to say, 'Can we do it?' I should have said, 'Will we do it?,'” he explains. “Can we accept that...
