Yakima Museum Unveiling War Poster Exhibit

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- The Yakima Valley Museum is unveiling a new exhibit tonight.

They're showing off a private collection of World War One and Two posters for the next several months.

Some are famous and recognizable, like the "I want you" poster or the ones drawn by Norman Rockwell.

There are plenty more, most designed to push people to contribute to the war effort.

There are even a few from World War Two drawn by Doctor Seuss.

The posters all come from a local Marine who has collected and researched them for years.

It was a great opportunity for the museum.

"I started realizing what an amazing way to tell a story of America's contributions to two wars and the whole public getting involved," said Curator of Exhibits Andy Granitto.

The museum worked with the collector for over a year to set everything up.

They're officially unveiling it tonight from 5 pm until 7 pm. The event is completely free to attend and the museum will serve drinks.

That's not your only chance to see the exhibit.

It will remain in the museum until August 18th, but you will have to pay the usual admission fee to see it after tonight.
