Event Details:

In remembrance of America’s entry into the First World War in 1917, Weapon on the Wall explores one of the most powerful tools the country used to persuade its public to support and sustain the war effort: the poster. Drawing from the Hoover Institution’s world-renowned archive of more than 130,000 posters, the exhibition showcases the boldly graphic environment of WWI and traces the pictorial treatment of Americans’ most dire concerns, including enlistment, fear of the enemy, food conservation, morale on the homefront, women at work, and fundraising for victory.
