Norman Rockwell: Imagining Freedom

Implementation of an exhibition based on Norman Rockwell’s Four Freedoms series at the Norman Rockwell Museum. 

This exhibition implementation project builds upon the success of a traveling exhibit, Rockwell, Roosevelt and the Four Freedoms. The project includes an adapted temporary exhibit, Rockwell, Roosevelt and the Four Freedoms, the distribution of 100 "Civic Citizens" mini-exhibits to libraries with a goal of reaching underserved audiences in all 50 states, digital resources and humanities lectures by national thought leaders available live and virtually. With partners American Library Association and Tanglewood Learning Institute, this project will engage communities across the country in collaborative discussions and participation in community projects, leading to deeper knowledge of civics. The project uses Rockwell's Four Freedoms as points of access to increase understanding of democracy and universal freedoms, and to introduce new audiences to humanities topics. The anticipated project reach is 2 million people.
