September 2 – October 12, 2014
July 28, 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I, a global conflict that lasted more than four years and claimed 37 million lives. In recognition of the centenary, The William Benton Museum of Art presents a selection of posters from The Great War contextualized with contemporary photographs and artifacts. As one of the primary and most effective means of communication with the public, posters were used by the United States government to encourage participation in all aspects of the war effort. This exhibition, which takes its title from a slogan used by the U.S. Food Administration in support of voluntary food rationing, focuses on the role of women in that undertaking and others essential to the allied victory.
