The Art of Devastation: Medals and Posters of the Great War Exhibit at Vassar College

Rare today, art medals thrived for centuries and rose to new heights during World War I. This exhibition of over 100 medals from both sides of the Great War reasserts their significance as works of art, and coincides with the 100th anniversary of the U.S. entry into the war. The medals come from the permanent collection of the American Numismatic Society in New York, which co-organized the exhibition with the Art Center. Interspersed are war posters on loan from the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and Special Collections, Vassar Library.

The exhibition is made possible by the Smart Family Foundation.

Gallery Hours Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 10:00am - 5:00pm, Thursday 10:00 - 9:00pm and Sunday 1:00pm - 5:00pm
