Propaganda: Selling A War exhibit opening @ Roberson

March 24 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$4 – $62

Explore the imagery and music that inspired a generation of Americans to take up arms in Europe during the first World War–The War to End All Wars.

Exhibit opens March 24 and will close in October.

Propaganda: Selling A War takes visitors back to a time when neutrality–staying out of war was the cultural mindset in America.

This exhibit explores how American values would be transformed through propaganda and would help lead a nation to join the European battlefront. Experience the rise of “duty to country” through media of pressure, empathy, and patriotism. And see how public opinion was changed and war gained acceptance through this medium.
