Love & War
New Exhibition in The Kinsey Institute Gallery
This exhibition, drawn entirely from The Kinsey Institute’s art and library collections, features visual material from the American Civil War to the present day. Highlighted in Love & War are popular items from the WWII era collected by Dr. Alfred Kinsey and his colleagues during their research travels across the U.S. in the mid-20th century, collecting a variety of research material as well as data for their study of human sexual behavior.
Items in the exhibition include cartoons, propaganda leaflets, postcards, photographs, magazines, pin-up calendars, drawings, prints, and a variety of novelty objects are featured, as well as a selection of contemporary images by Garrie Maguire, Len Prince, Herbert Ascherman, and Karen Baldner whose work addresses war in the modern age.
The Kinsey Institute Gallery is open 1:30 pm to 5:00 pm weekdays or by appointment. Admission is free.
Due to adult content, visitors should be 18 years of age or older, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.
