FOR HOME AND COUNTRY: The Great War and Kansas City presented by The Box Gallery at The Box Gallery, Kansas City MO

FOR HOME AND COUNTRY: The Great War and Kansas City at The Box Gallery runs November 1st – January 31, 2020. Gallery is open Monday-Friday 8am – 8pm.

When World War I ended in 1918, the nation celebrated victory.  Patriotism was at a peak, and the citizens of Kansas City opened their hearts and wallets to support their country.  This exhibit recalls Kansas City at the Great War’s conclusion in 1918-1919.  It was a time that transitioned Kansas City from the demands of war to the obligations and opportunities of a newly won peace and inspired the idea of constructing an iconic museum and memorial to remember those who served and sacrificed.
