    • Caption label from exhibit "World War I ...": Eugenie De Land's Design for Liberty Bond Poster. One of the few female artists designing posters during the war, Eugenie De Land drew this original watercolor design for her second Liberty Loan poster. Its message suggests that the viewer's actions determine whether the sun rises or sets as the evening sky transforms into an American flag over the Statue of Liberty. De Land studied under illustrator Howard Pyle at Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry before beginning her thirty-five-year career as an art teacher. She taught in Washington, D.C., at the Corcoran School of Art and McKinley High School before retiring in 1942.
