Collection: Office of War Information (OWI)

The Office of War Information (OWI) was a U.S. government agency created during World War II to coordinate information and propaganda efforts. As part of their mission, the OWI produced thousands of posters designed to promote patriotism, encourage support for the war effort, and boost morale on the home front. These posters featured striking graphics and slogans, such as "Loose Lips Sink Ships" and "We Can Do It!", and were displayed in public spaces and workplaces across the country. The OWI's posters played a significant role in shaping American attitudes and perceptions during the war years and remain iconic symbols of the era to this day.
