Spies, Lies, and Paranoia: Americans in Fear
Description: This exhibition explores the real and imagined fears of Americans in the 1940s and early 1950s as Cold War tensions grew. The show will focus on real espionage, imagined threats, and the threatening images created in popular culture (spy novels, motion pictures, toys/novelties, games, etc). Drawing from a wide array of materials, the exhibition will capture not only a flavor of real espionage and its gadgetry, but also a sense of the anxiety Americans experienced to both real and imagined threats.
