To commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, the State Historical Society has put up the Thomas Hart Benton's Year of Peril Series. Benton created the series of war propaganda paintings at the beginning of the U.S. involvement in WWII. The exhibit will also include editorial cartoons and posters created by other artists in 1942.
