Designing for Victory
The Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach will channel British patriotism in a new exhibition that opens Thursday. "Keep Calm and Carry On: World War II and the British Home Front, 1938-1951" will explore the ways in which artists, designers, architects, and filmmakers in Great Britain strengthened the public morale during wartime. British home-front efforts during World War II were remarkable, particularly in the creative industries. This exhibit is concerned with design and is divided into three sections: Design for Fashion & Beauty, Design for Shelter & Protection, and Design for Entertainment & Propaganda.
"Keep Calm and Carry On" opens Thursday, in conjunction with the Norton's weekly Art After Dark social event, which includes performing and visual arts, food, and networking opportunities. The exhibit will run through January 30 at the Norton Museum of Art, located at 1451 S. Olive Ave. in West Palm Beach. Admission to the Norton costs $12 for adults and $5 for students. Call 561-832-5196, or visit norton.org.
