Playgrounds occupy a special place in childhood; whether swings, slides, climbing towers or all of the above. Adults and children alike find playgrounds to be magical places where imagination can literally run free. Trends and themes vary with the times but the lure of a playground entices us all to stay and play awhile. This exhibit brings together more than 60 illustrations and photographs, contemporary and historic, of playgrounds creating a virtual tour through 50 years of classic playgrounds.
EHS&M will be the first and possibly only Oklahoma stop for the exhibit.

The impact of war reaches far beyond the soldiers on the front lines. It ravages the lives and homes of those who live in battle torn countries. It disrupts families and communities for years after the fighting has stopped. The posters, photographs and artworks features in this exhibit were created to raise awareness of the impact of World War II throughout the world. Many of America’s top artists, including Grant Wood and James Montgomery Flagg, donated their time and talent to illustrate the range of efforts organized to help the many areas and people affected by World War II.
EHS&M is currently the only Oklahoma stop for this exhibit.
