    Event Description:
    How do you shape the national narrative? From marketing a war to tackling current social issues, propaganda posters have long served as a means to shift public perception.

    During WWI, the United States recruited artists to work fro the country's first propaganda department and convince a nation of the merits of war.

    Today, local nonprofit Amplifier commissions artists to amplfy the messages of grassroots social justice movements.

    Hear from historian Bill Woodward joined by Cleo Barnett and Isabella Sisneros from Amplifier. Learn about the power and potential of propaganda posters past and present, and enjoy a one-night-only viewing of selected posters from MOHAI's collection. 

    Come early for a bite to eat at the South Lake Cafe before the program, open until 7 pm.
