WWI Posters--Rallying the Home Front

On Display Oct. 7 – Dec. 31, 2017
This special exhibit of American propaganda posters commemorates the 100th anniversary of the U.S.’s entry into WWI. The U.S. government decided to use an artistic popular medium, the poster, to incite fear in its citizens of an unknown enemy on another continent. Some of the illustrations have become the most iconic American images ever made, such as James Montgomery Flagg’s stern image of Uncle Sam pointing to the viewer above the words, “I Want You for U.S. Army.” Be prepared for an emotionally powerful and artistically fascinating experience. 



We thank our exhibit sponsors Auer Ace Hardware, Endsley Insurance Agency and Given-Dawson-Paisley Funeral Home.
