World War I Centenary Explored in Exhibition opening August 30

This Is War! Graphic Arts from the Great War, opening August 30, will offer a gripping look at World War I through the themes and voices that dominated the graphic arts of the time. Through woodcuts, etchings, posters, and drawings, the exhibit will explore trench warfare, soldiers on leave, life on the home front, the influence of posters in supporting the war effort, and the role of periodicals such as Kriegzeit (Wartime) in disseminating the graphic arts as well as the political messages of the day.
