The Artists for Victory were a non-profit organization formed to put the special training and technical skills of artists at the service of the US government during World War II. Their job was to use specific images that would resonate with Americans in order to get them involved in the War effort during World War II.
The government knew that in order to win the war our country was going to have to pull together and the Artists for Victory project brought real, heartfelt propaganda to America’s front door.
