The Rozsa galleries’ first Intendent Exhibition of the 2018 season, American and French Posters from The Great War showcases WWI-era propaganda posters. This exhibit is supported by a Michigan Council for the Humanities Grant. Shell Shocked recreates the sensorium of battle at the western front, matching historic​ silent​ film footage to audio recreations of the sounds of war. This multimedia installation brings the horrific reality experienced by soldiers who fought in the war into sharp contrast with a parallel display of patriotic propaganda, both in the Rozsa Gallery.
