Chrissy Gregg presents Propaganda: Graphic Art or Advertising

Are propaganda posters art, advertising, or both? Special Exhibit Curator Chrissy Gregg discusses how artists and advertisers used varying techniques to shape public opinion during World War II. These competing factions believed certain tactics and tools would elicit a greater emotional response from viewers. Join us to learn which group ultimately determined the visual messages of these posters.

Lunchbox Lectures are free and open to the public on every first and third Wednesday of the month. For more information call 504-528-1944 x 463.
