Sunday, April 9

During World War I, the United States produced more propaganda posters than any other combatant, and in a much shorter time. With visual culture the domain of private enterprise, the government commissioned advertising agencies and artists to produce the posters that supported the war effort. In all, twenty million copies of 2,500 posters in support of the war were sold, thus signaling the beginning of our image saturated world. The Division of Pictorial Publicity, which also produced posters for the war effort, was the first US government art agency in support of a war. Free and open to the public. Temple Judea Museum at Keneseth Israel, 8339 Old York Road, Elkins Park, PA. For more information, call 215-887-2027.
