On display from September 25 through October 13 at the Service Credit Union (SCU) Corporate Office at 3003 Lafayette Road in Portsmouth, the Saturday Evening Post Cover Exhibit features items lent by the Wright Museum in Wolfeboro.
Curated by Wright Museum Executive Director Michael Culver, Saturday Evening Post Cover Exhibit features covers donated by John and Evelyn Frank that are now part of their permanent collection. He referred to the partnership with Service Credit Union as “perfect.”
“Both organizations are committed to enriching the lives of New Hampshire residents,” he said. “In our own ways, we also recognize and acknowledge those Americans, both past and present, who have helped shape our national identity. The SCU headquarters is great venue for this decidedly American exhibit and we are proud to have it there.”
Service Credit Union President/CEO David Van Rossum said the exhibit allows guest to look back through history at important moments, particularly those related to WWII.
“It was the most ubiquitous and influential magazine of the time,” he said. “We are so pleased to make this historically significant exhibit free to our community and introduce our new exhibit space.”
The covers will be on display inside the atrium of Service Credit Union from Monday, September 25th until Friday, October 13th with hours as follows: daily from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and extended hours until 8 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday. There is no charge to the public and all are welcome.
