This exhibit is made possible through a partnership between the University of Indianapolis and the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites. During World Wars I and II, the American homefront was asked to endure extraordinary circumstances and sacrifices to achieve victory. To that end, the federal government used posters and other methods of persuasion to help muster the American people to action. A successful poster dramatically expresses its message using a combination of graphic images and text. This exhibition features 30 reproductions of World War II posters from the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites permanent collection.
