On Tuesday, June 20th at 6:30pm, the Museum of the City of New York will present “Culture Goes to War,” a panel discussion coinciding with the museum’s exhibition Posters and Patriotism: Selling World War I in New York in honor of the World War I centennial. Through October, Posters and Patriotism will showcase posters, flyers, and other mass-produced images created by New York City’s artists and illustrators enlisted in the war to stir patriotism, wartime loyalty, and sacrifice. The talk will complement the exhibit and delve into the artistic and historical explanations behind these patriotic images.

Both this exhibit and talk are part of the French Embassy’s yearlong nationwide centennial commemoration of the United States entrance into WWI, "How 1917 Changed the World." Speakers will include Caroline Fieschi, head Curator at the Museum of Contemporary History in Paris, Bibliothèque de Documentation Internationale Contemporaine alongside fellow panelists Nicholas Birns, associate Professor at New York University and Robert Kimball, author and historian of American musical theatre. Moderated by Donald Albrecht, Co-curator of the Posters and Patriotism: Selling World War I in New York exhibit, this panel will bring together leading historians, authors, and curators to discuss new modes of artistic and literary expression that developed in response to World War I along with other thought-provoking subjects related to the War. The evening will also include a performance of George M. Cohan's “Over There," as well as other hits from the era performed by celebrated cabaret performer Michael Lowne.
