Here at The Reading Public Museum, not only do we host traveling exhibitions, we tour exhibitions from our collection as well! Take a sneak peek at our exhibition, Call to Duty: World War Posters with a wonderful video created by The Haggin Museum, where the exhibition is currently displayed.
More than seventy original World War I and World War II posters drawn from RPM's permanent collection help tell the story of the massive human efforts put forth during these twentieth-century global conflicts. Displayed in public locations such as post offices, train stations, city halls, schools, and businesses, war posters and, perhaps more importantly, the messages they communicated, were ubiquitous throughout the United States.
