Thursday, February 21
5:30 p.m.

Join us for this Town Hall-style conversation inspired by Norman Rockwell’s "Four Freedoms" paintings, that will explore the ways in which imagery inspires us, invites us to question the world around us, and affects change. Led by award-winning photojournalist and author Jane Feldman, expert commentators will offer observations and inspire community discourse. Refreshments and a reception will follow. Free.

The original oil painting remains a highlight of the Museum's collection, and custom prints are available to order here:
