“Persuasion” Opening Reception: 1/24

Posted on January 22, 2017 | Filed under Events

The opening reception for “Persuasion” is Tuesday, January 24, from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Doane Hall of Art in the Bowman-Penelec-Megahan Galleries just off the Campus Center. This exhibition offers a survey of government-sponsored efforts at persuasion in the twentieth century through the use of graphic art. Collaborations between government organizations and artists produced not simply advertisements, but what could be described as a form of “high art;” beautifully striking imagery combined with sharp, succinct messages for maximum emotional impact and creation of normative values and a common visual language.

The exhibit runs from January 24 to February 21, 2017, and is curated by Darren Lee Miller, Ken Pinnow, Ph.D., and Richard Schindler, Ph.D., with assistance from M. Greg Singer ’15 and Jonathan Yee ’17. The exhibit is supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
