The Oregon Historical Society has opened a new exhibit featuring propaganda posters from the First and Second World Wars. The posters, from the Mark Family Collection, provide a unique glimpse into an era before television and internet, when artists and marketers were challenged to communicate in a way that would convey important messages. The Art of War
is a precursor to the anticipated WWII exhibit and is on display through December 7. The WWII exhibit, opening June 26, is a 6,000 square foot exhibit of letters, historic documents and military uniforms that provide a sense of place and lens into the many events of WWII, including prominent battles and critical political decisions.
