Reimagining The Four Freedoms – video
What does freedom mean in the 21st century? In celebration of the 75th anniversary of “The Four Freedoms,” Norman Rockwell Museum teamed up with New York’s Capital Area Art Supervisors to present a unique exhibition that examined President Franklin Delano’s concept, famously painted by artist Norman Rockwell, from the perspective of a new generation.
