Now at Philbrook -- "Hope & Fear: Propaganda of the Great War"

Aired on Tuesday, June 27th.

On this edition of ST, we learn about a striking new show at the Philbrook Museum of Art here in Tulsa; "Hope & Fear: Propaganda of the Great War" will be on view through November 12th. Our guests are the show's co-curators, Chief Curator Catherine Whitney and Librarian/Archivist Thomas Young. As noted of this exhibit at the Philbrook website: "To commemorate the 100th anniversary year of America's entry into World War I, Philbrook presents wartime propaganda art from the Museum's permanent collection. Spread across two galleries on the upper level, 'Hope & Fear' vividly illustrates two opposing approaches to this conflict. One gallery includes the pro-war posters, while the second features the deeply disconcerting War Series lithographs by [the well-regarded American artist] George Bellows." Also on today's program, our commentator Barry Friedman offers "Iceland: Part 1."
