U.S. poster art inspired by the World War 1 on exhibit at LOC

An exhibit showing how American artists galvanized public interest in World War I opened May 7 at the Library of Congress (LOC), in the Graphic Arts Galleries on the Ground Floor of the Thomas Jefferson Building.

Uncle Sam PosterWorld War I: American Artists View the Great War” features 25 fine prints, drawings, cartoons, posters and photographs drawn from the Library’s Prints and Photographs Division. An additional 70 photographs will be shown in a monitor slide show.

The works on display reflect the focus of wartime art on patriotic and propaganda messages — by government-supported as well as independent and commercial artists. In the fall, an exhibition rotation will occur and 27 new items will be placed on display. A total of 40 artists will be represented.

 

World War I: American Artists View the Great War” will remain open for a year, closing on May 6, 2017.
