GRASS VALLEY– Window Gallery: The Art of War 1914-1919, Poster Art of World War I
October 31, 2018 – November 1, 2018
An event every day that begins at 5:00 pm, repeating until November 30, 2018
GRASS VALLEY– “The Art of War – 1914-1919: A Window Gallery of the Poster Art of World War I” will showcase some of the dynamic posters that rallied our nation. Thanks to the combined efforts of the Grass Valley Historical Commission and the Nevada County Historical Society, the windows of a currently-vacant storefront will be transformed into a nostalgic gallery at 206 W. Main St., Grass Valley. This exhibit will run throughout November. This program is part of a project entitled Over Here: Nevada County’s Experience of WWI which is supported by California Humanities through an Humanities for All Quick Grant. Although the battlefields of World War I were far from rural Nevada County, its residents were deeply engaged in the war’s issues and the challenges it presented. The war was the most consequential event of the 20th century, yet it has almost faded from modern memory. Over Here: Nevada County’s Experience of World War I is a multifaceted program designed to reconnect our community to this transformational event in our nation’s history. Our program is scheduled to coincide with the worldwide commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Armistice between Germany and the Allies that brought and end to the fighting of the Western Front on November 11, 1918.
