Exhibit See: Windows on the War: Soviet Posters at Home and Abroad (Art Institute of Chicago)

During WWII, Russians' personal opinion and creativity was silenced and forbidden, but it seems artists during the era found a way to not only continue to create art, but to put their skills to use to make anti-Nazi propaganda. Windows On War: Soviet TASS Posters at Home and Abroad features 157 anti-war posters created by TASS, the Soviet Union's news agency. The posters, which went decades undiscovered until 1997, are featured alonsgside other WWII photographs and documentaries.
