On Thursday, January 25, Bridgewater State University’s Maxwell Library will hold an opening reception for the exhibit, The Art of Propaganda: Posters of World War I and II. The event runs from 4-6 p.m., and is located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the library. The exhibit will be open to the public, free of charge, from January 17 to April 6, 2018.   

From buying Liberty bonds to fund the war effort to planting Victory gardens to free up food for troops, America’s self-sacrifice was on full display during World War I and II. The government propaganda machine responsible for this played an immense role on public opinion for both World Wars. The artistically designed posters represented in this exhibit depict the messages the American government sent to everyone from housewives to soldiers emphasizing the need to make sacrifices for our country during wartime.
