Look Around Lubbock: Work, Fight, Give exhibit at Silent Wings Museum

Posted: Updated:

The Work, Fight, Give: American Relief Posters of WWII exhibit at the Silent Wings Museum offers a wide-ranging collection of original relief posters and memorabilia that provides a new window on understanding a watershed event in our nation’s history. Work, Fight, Give puts relief efforts at the forefront through an array of 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. This exhibition was curated by Hal Wert, professor of history at Kansas City Art Institute in Kansas City, MO, and organized by ExhibitsUSA, a program of Mid-America Arts Alliance. The exhibit will be available for viewing until January 13.

The Silent Wings Museum is located at 6202 N. I-27 (exit 9).

Regular business hours are Tuesday – Saturday, 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. and Sunday, 1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m

The family-friendly Veterans Day event at the Silent Wings Museum is on Sunday from 1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. All visitors will be welcomed with free admission to the museum and ceremonial activities beginning at 2:00 p.m.
