On April 5th at 6:30 pm, the Museum of the City of New York will host a discussion about the connections between propaganda posters from WWI and current design works.

Inspired by the exhibition Posters and Patriotism: Selling WWI in New York and the 100th  anniversary of the U.S. entry into World War I, a panel of leading graphic designers, Seymour Chwast, Laurie Rosenwald, and Paula Scher, moderated by Donald Albrecht, co-curator of the exhibition, will discuss a selection of rarely-exhibited propaganda posters—and consider parallels in the world of graphic design and illustration today.

Date : April 5, 2017
Time : 6.30 pm
Place : Museum of the City of New York, 1220 Fifth Avenue
Price: $15 and up | $10 for Museum members

This event is part of the French Embassy's yearlong nationwide centennial commemoration of the United States entrance into WWI, How 1917 Changed the World.

Presented by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy with support from The French Mission du centenaire de la Première Guerre mondiale, in charge of the World War One Centenary in France. This program is endorsed by The U.S. World War One Centennial Commission as a commemorative partner, which recognizes commitment to educating the public about World War One and honoring those who served.
