On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, the Chapman Museum will present an exhibition and related public and school programs that look at the role of propaganda posters in building public support during the war. The exhibit will encourage viewers to compare the era to today, and to consider how we as a nation address issues associated with war.

Also featured in the exhibit will be excerpts of the LOOK magazines series of articles about “Hometown, USA,” which used Glens Falls as a case study to explore homefront issues facing Americans during the war.  Programs will include an examination of WWII movies, music and other aspects of popular culture of the era.

Funded by grants from the Waldo T. & Ruth S. Ross Charitable Trust, the Leo Cox Beach Philanthropic Foundation, the Touba Family Foundation, the City of Glens Falls and the Town of Queensbury.
