The exhibit, Hope for Those Who Need It,” opening January 25, 2018, will take visitors through the widespread destruction of post-World War II Europe, the hotly contested Congressional debates over the Marshall Plan’s funding, the immediate relief that initial aid provided, and the enduring legacy of the Marshall Plan today. A prominent feature of the exhibition will be a recently acquired original and complete set of lithographs of the twenty-five finalists of the 1950 “Intra-European Cooperation for A Better Standard of Living” poster contest.
