​Posters were designed to instill pride, patriotism and confidence in the U.S. war effort. The collection pictured was on display in 2017.

                        

Collector Mike Falk loaned the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum more than 500 WWII propaganda posters for its current special exhibit. He will now share his expertise on Thursday, Oct. 1 at 6 p.m. on Facebook and YouTube.

Posters were designed to instill pride, patriotism and confidence in the U.S. war effort. In this talk Falk goes beyond artwork and focuses, instead, on the messages conveyed and how they impacted the public. While he will only highlight 12 out of the 511 posters on display, viewers will not be disappointed. Each poster tells its own unique story about what was happening in the U.S., Germany, China and Great Britain.

The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is located at 300 N. Whitewoman St. in Coshocton. Support for this program has been provided by Ohio Humanities, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the federal CARES Act of 2020. The Ohio Arts Council also helped fund this event with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.

Museum hours are Tuesday through Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. Every Sunday offers free admission to Coshocton County residents.
