The Great War that Changed the World, 1914-1918
February 17, 2015 – January 24, 2016
Commemorate the 100th anniversary of an event that changed our world forever. During the “Great War,” as it was called, 65 million men and women served in militaries from 36 current nations spanning 6 continents, nine million of which died. The First World War saw the introduction of new technology, the fall of empires, the rise of new states, the loss of a generation, and changes in society as a whole.
This exhibit is a collaboration of faculty and graduate student curators, designed and fabricated with the assistance of Art Department Professional Practices students. This exhibit is the first of two to commemorate the Centennial.
The Great War that Changed America, 1914-1918 will open in 2017.
