Convincing the Nation
This exhibit draws on historical artwork, archival material and artifacts to tell the story of the United States government's efforts to capture people's attention during World War II, as it sought public support and a cooperative home-front willing to put the needs of the nation before their own.
 The exhibit  will be on display through December 19.

In today's era of heightened environmental awareness, artists are increasingly turning to junk stores, trash bins, and surplus outlets to satisfy their urge to create while still caring for the planet.  This exhibit is designed to make people rethink our throw-away society by sharing the local community's innovative and often surprising use of reused and recycled materials.
