Cleveland Fed to Host Special Exhibit, “Propaganda and Patriotism: The Art of Financing America’s Wars”
The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland’s Learning Center and Money Museum will be hosting a special exhibit, "Propaganda and Patriotism: The Art of Financing America's Wars."
Opening on September 10, 2013, and running through January 30, 2014, the exhibit will showcase the Bank's collection of vintage War Bond posters, which were designed to inspire patriotism and support for World Wars I and II.
In addition to their historical significance, War Bond posters have endured as an art form, having been designed by prominent American artists including Norman Rockwell and Howard Chandler Christy.
Visitors can view the exhibit during regular Learning Center hours: Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., except holidays.
Visitors can also check out the Learning Center's 25 interactive exhibits and displays, focused on what gives money value.
The Learning Center and Money Museum is located inside the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, 1455 East Sixth Street, in downtown Cleveland. Admission is free!
