An exhibit by the Fall 2012 Exhibit Design Class At Florida Gulf Coast University
Opening Reception — On the 3rd Floor of the FGCU Library
The mission statement of the Museum Studies Program is as follows: The FGCU Museum Studies Program collects stores and conserves material culture, art work, historical records and archaeological artifacts representing Florida and beyond. It strives to advocate through the use of exhibitions both within FGCU campus and through the form of traveling displays. The Museum Studies Program accomplishes this through its commitment to training students for future careers in museums and cultural heritage management as well as through community outreach in Southwest Florida.
With this in mind, the Exhibition Design class, in collaboration with The Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida, has developed an exhibition of loaned WWII propaganda posters. The exhibition explores WWII propaganda and its effects, and then looks at the impacts those images have had on propaganda since WWII and their translation into current propaganda images. Students from the class will be present to host the event and answer questions. Come and join us for an entertaining and educational experience.
