February First Friday: Work, Fight, Give
Work, Fight, Give: American Relief Posters of WWII to Debut at M-AAA First Friday
A preview of ExhibitsUSA’s Work, Fight, Give: American Relief Posters of WWII will open at Mid-America Arts Alliance Friday, February 3, in conjunction with the Kansas City Crossroads Arts District’s February First Friday celebration. M-AAA, located at 2018 Baltimore, will be open 6:00–8:00 p.m.
Work, Fight, Give: American Relief Posters of WWII offers a wide-ranging collection of original relief posters and memorabilia that provides an exciting new window on understanding a watershed event in our nation’s history. Work, Fight, Give is the first exhibition to challenge our traditional memory of World War II, putting relief efforts at the forefront through an array of visually exciting poster art, poster stamps (known as “Cinderellas”), photographs, banners, and programs issued by the various relief agencies and by the National War Fund—an agency created by Franklin Roosevelt in early 1942 to consolidate the hundreds of relief agencies that sprang up to aid those countries and peoples devastated by war.
We can’t wait to see you!
