The exhibition commemorates former president Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s 1941 State of the Union speech, also know as the Four Freedoms speech, in which he believed all citizens around the world were entitled to Four Freedoms:

  • Freedom of speech
  • Freedom of worship
  • Freedom from want
  • Freedom from fear

Norman Rockwell, a 20th-century American painter and illustrator duplicated these Four Freedoms in a poster series. This poster series will celebrate its 75th anniversary. To honor this occasion, students were asked to create a work of their own which reimagines what the Four Freedoms may be in 2018.

This exhibition is representative of 100+ works from nine surrounding Capital Region school districts.
