Celebrate America in Music

The Warren Public Library invites the public to visit a “Celebrate America” exhibit. Throughout the month of July, 50 years of largely twentieth-century

patriotic sheet music cover art from the Robertson Collection will be on display in the library’s Wetmore Gallery.

From Yankee Doodle in 1775 to God Bless America in 1942 the music of America has reflected our ideals and national purpose as well as our cultural and historical life. This exhibit will feature over 125 melodies celebrating America.

The highlighted pieces include songs of inspiration, liberation, and opposition to tyranny and are representative of various eras in American history. They express a dedication to liberty with humor, solemnity and sentiment alike and reflect a love of freedom, an appreciation of the action and sacrifice required to preserve it, and visions of how we want our homeland to be.

The cover art employs powerful symbols and creates melodies that linger in our memory and contribute to our shared sense of national identity while spotlighting the impact of music in defining the ethos of America’s social values, goals, psychology, and culture over time.

The exhibit will be available to view throughout the month of July during all hours that the library is open. Call 723-4650 for more information.
