EVENT DETAILS

On this docent-led tour learn how Norman Rockwell’s 1943 paintings—Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Fear, and Freedom from Want—give visual voice to Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s 1941 speech. Dive deep into the story through artworks by both Rockwell and a broad range of his contemporaries, and learn how Rockwell’s pieces were transformed from a series of paintings into a national movement.
