Collector Mike Falk graciously loaned us over 500 WWII propaganda posters for our current special exhibit. We are excited to announce that he will be sharing his expertise with us! Join us on October 1st at 6:00P.M. to see highlights from this collection. We will be posting a video on Facebook and on YouTube.
Posters were designed to instill pride, patriotism, and confidence in the U.S. war effort. In this talk, Falk goes beyond artwork and focuses, instead, on the messages conveyed and how they impacted the public. While he will only highlight 12 out of the 511 posters on display, you will not be disappointed! Each poster tells its own unique story about what was happening in the U.S., German, China, and Great Britain. We hope that you take what you learn from this video, come to JHM, and think about these messages and how they would've impacted you.
No specific account (ex. Facebook) or registration required. Video can be viewed at anytime on Facebook, YouTube, or below.
Keep an eye out for the video! Video will be available here for the remainder of the Special Exhibit showing.
