The Art of War: Propaganda Posters of World Wars I and II
February 28 – December 7, 2015


Guns, bombs, planes, tanks, ships, and submarines were the major weapons of World Wars I and II, but the persuasive powers of words and images were critically important in gaining and galvanizing the support of the American public. This sampling of 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 to the general public in a way that would simply and enduringly convey important messages.

World War II: A World at War, A State Transformed
June 26 – December 7, 2015


Join us as we honor the Greatest Generation through an original exhibition, opening 70 years following the end of World War II. In World War II: A World at War, A State Transformed, artifacts and manuscripts from the premier Mark Family Collection illustrate this massive conflict, from the battlefields in North Africa to the home fronts in America. Letters, historic documents, and military uniforms provide a sense of place and give visitors a lens into the many events of World War II, including prominent battles and critical political decisions.
