The Art of Suggestion: American Propaganda in Times of War and Peace
Published as a method to inform the public, propaganda can be used as a tool—either intentionally or unintentionally—to influence public opinion, especially during times of war or conflict. Posters, leaflets, books, and advertisements in film and on the radio provide information, which in turn can stimulate a response from their directed audience. Join us on November 9 for the chance to view documents published by the U.S. government in the early twentieth century that served as war and peacetime propaganda.
