Money, Mail and Memoria: Ephemera of the Civil War Era
The State Historical Society of Missouri Research Center - Columbia, Corridor Gallery
Many limit discussion of Civil War art to paintings, sculptures, photographs, and fine prints. This exhibit focuses on popular imagery from more unexpected contexts. Pictures decorated currency, newspapers, sheet music, books, popular prints, and other media. Much of this neglected art of the Civil War era helps us better understand the political, social, and cultural climate of the period.
Gallery Hours: 8 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. Tues-Fri; 8 a.m.- 3:30 p.m. Sat; Closed Sun. & Mon.
