Imagined Realities: World War Propaganda @ Mansfield Library Tickets
May 1 – May 31 all-day
Imagined Realities: World War Propaganda @ Mansfield Library

This exhibit in the Mansfield Library’s Theta Rho Room presents examples of World War I and World War II propaganda that were created from multiple perspectives and published in the United States, Germany, Great Britain and France.

Propaganda can be bold or subtle. It often takes simple facts and twists them to convince people of their worst fears, and it persuades everyday individuals to mobilize against a perceived threat. This exhibit demonstrates how wartime propaganda during both World Wars strategically harnessed the fears and expectations of an intended audience and made them come alive through carefully chosen images and text.

The materials in the exhibit are drawn from original documents held in the World War I Pamphlet Collection (Pam 01) and the World War II Pamphlet Collection (Pam 02) at the Mansfield Library’s Archives and Special Collections. The exhibit will be up through the end of 2019.

MMAC Exhibition: ‘The Evocative Moment’ @ Performing Arts and Radio/Television Center Tickets
May 29 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm
MMAC Exhibition: 'The Evocative Moment' @ Performing Arts and Radio/Television Center
Through works spanning the artist’s career, this exhibition surveys Stephanie Frostad’s creative concern with myths and metaphors brought to life as pictorial realism. The storytelling tradition is vital to her mission: to create a truly democratic art. “As a narrative painter,” she states, “my objective is to present the essential elements of a story […]” In striving toward this aim, she builds pictures that are sometimes joyful, sometimes mysterious, uncanny, even dark.

In conjunction with the exhibition, Frostad will present a gallery talk at 5:15 p.m. Thursday, April 4, in the PAR/TV Center lobby.

During the academic year, MMAC’s gallery hours run from noon to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday and from noon to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday, and it is closed Sundays, Mondays and UM holidays. The museum is open to the public with a suggested $5 donation. Docent tours are available, although advance notice is recommended.
