To commemorate the one-hundredth anniversary of World War I, and of the founding of the Dada movement, the University Art Gallery and Special Collections in Pickler Memorial Library have collaborated on two interrelated exhibitions about art produced during The Great War.  In the larger gallery space an exhibition titled Join, Save, Buy: U.S. World War I Posters on the Home Front, features never-before-exhibited World War I posters from the E.M. Violette Museum that reveal American experiences on the home front.. Arts Against the Great War exhibits works of visual culture, historic objects, and archival material which together explore the war’s complications, violence, and human cost
