"World War I in Posters"

The Scottish Rite Masonic Museum is once again bringing the members of Scottish Rite and their families an educational and interesting exhibit at the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction Headquarters in Lexington. “Americans, Do Your Bit: World War I in Posters” is one of the newest exhibits at the Museum, and tells the story of the American homefront through World War I. This exhibit will run up until June of 2018 to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the United States’ entry into WWI, and will have more than 70 items on display. 
 
There are several themes that are explored across the many posters on display. Posters on the Homefront show the effort to encourage citizens to donate money and support to U.S Troops. Food is Ammunition was the government's method of encouraging citizens to use food wisely and to produce food at home through eye-catching posters. These two topics and many others are all visible in the fantastic posters on display at the Museum! 
 
The Lexington Museum is open Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 a.m. Admission and Parking for the Museum is free, so grab the family or come down yourself and see this historical exhibit!
