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 curators from across the University and graduate student curator and project coordinator Sheila Boone. The exhibit design and much of the fabrication was completed by Professional Practices students in the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art. This exhibit is the first of two to commemorate the Centennial.
The Great War that Changed America, 1914-1918 will open in 2017.
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 26, 2015
4:00 – 6:00 p.m. at the Museum
Come visit with the curators! Light refreshments will be served.
