The Art of Persuasion: Propaganda Posters from WW1 to Today


Monday January 14


7:00 PM  –  8:30 PM

How do you shape the national narrative? From marketing a war to tackling current social issues, propaganda posters have long served as a means to shift public perception. During WWI, the United States recruited famous artists to work for the country’s first propaganda department and convince a nation of the merits of war. Today, local non-profit Amplifier commissions artists to amplify the messages of grassroots social justice movements. Hear from historian Bill Woodward and Amplifier's Isabella Sisneros about the power and potential of propaganda posters, both past and present. Enjoy a one-night only viewing of selected posters from MOHAI's collection.
