We are pleased to present a series of pop-up exhibits featuring WWI: Ridgefield Answers the Call at different locations in town through November 2018. This exhibit of ten display posters, created by local graphic artist Bil Mikulewicz, commemorates the end of WWI and centers on the contribution Ridgefield residents made during the war. The exhibit will be on view:
- September 5 – 12: Founders Hall
- September 30 – Peter Parley Schoolhouse (from 1 to 4 pm)
- November 6 – Ridgefield Playhouse Lobby (shown in tandem with a free screening of Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero at 4 pm)
WWI: Ridgefield Answers the Call is a compilation of historic photographs and ephemera, researched and sourced from the Historical Society’s extensive archives, and paired with original artwork by the artist to create a colorful and engaging exhibit for all ages. This program is part of Ridgefield Remembers WWI, a town-wide commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.
