Patriotism on Display
While the United States involvement in World War I was relatively brief, we helped win the war. Part of the credit belongs to the wartime posters that urged Americans to participate in the war effort.
Opening today, more than a 100 years after the end of that war, is “Patriotic Persuasion: American Posters of the First World War” at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich.
The show was assembled by Elizabeth D. Smith, Resident Fellow, in conjunction with Ken Silver, Adjunct Curator and author of “Esprit de Corps: The Art of the Parisian Avant-garde and the First World War, 1914-1925.”
Howard Chandler Christy (1873-1952), <I Want You for the Navy,> 1917
Message in a Bottle
A national juried exhibit, “Me, Myself, and I”, featuring vessel-based work opens at the Clay Art Center in Port Chester with a reception from 6-8. Artists took the opportunity to express how they see themselves within
society, family, relationships, and under their own skin.
The show runs through March 4. Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday from 10-5.

Art in the Service of Humanity
Congregation Emanu-El of Westchester is holding a special art exhibit and event, “Cartoonists Against the Holocaust”, with the Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center from 7:15-8:30 p.m. All are welcome.
A small number of American political cartoonists used their art to cry out against injustice; they cajoled, embarrassed, and pilloried the politicians in London and Washington who failed to save Jewish lives when they had the opportunity, and moved the public to demand the rescue of Hitler’s victims.
The synagogue is located on the border of Rye and Harrison, near School of the Holy Child on Westchester Avenue East.
With a Latin Beat
A new golden age of Latin music dawns at the Purchase Performing Arts Center with performances by the indie mambo band Orkesta Mendoza and the alternative Chicano band Las Cafeteras at 8.
Their music knows no boundaries.
