World War I and Art: PBS NewsHour

America joined World War I 100 years ago in April.

Here's an interesting clip from the PBS NewsHour which explores a new art exhibit in Philadelphia about how artists dealt with the conflict. It explores the development of propaganda and iconic images like Uncle Sam.

Although the focus is American, it might be interesting for world history students because of its focus on propaganda and art, a medium that all sides used.
