In conjunction with Black Bodies in Propaganda: The Art of the War Poster, this exhibition will commemorate the centenary of American entry into the First World War. As tools of mass communication intended to mobilize Americans, the use of posters has never been equaled.
Despite the passage of 100 years, the many examples presented in The Power of Posters: Mobilizing the Home Front to Win The Great War still retain their emotional power. Ranging from sweet and comforting to menacing and terrifying, they help us in the 21st century understand what it was like to be an American on the home front during The Great War.
