Light Up, Doc

from Wayne Wood:

I’ve always been interested in the way advertising uses images and words to get in the heads of people. It’s interesting to hear people say that they are not influenced by advertising, because somebody who says that is exactly the kind of gullible person who is most easy to influence.

Anyway, Vanderbilt University’s Sarratt Gallery is partnering with the Department of Otolaryngology to host an exhibit called Not a Cough in a Carload, which features advertising images from the tobacco industry’s campaign to hide the hazards of smoking between the late 1920s and early 1950s. Prints will be on display November 4 through December 1.
