What does freedom mean today?

Experience the power of Norman Rockwell’s iconic depictions of President Franklin Roosevelt’s ideas at Enduring Ideals: Rockwell, Roosevelt & the Four Freedoms. Born amid the turmoil of World War II, the Four Freedoms have since become one of its greatest legacies, a testament to the importance of human rights and dignity. Brought forward by one of America’s greatest presidents and immortalized by one of its most beloved artists, the Four Freedoms continue to inspire, resonating across generations as strongly today as they did in their time.

Organized by Norman Rockwell Museum, Enduring Ideals: Rockwell, Roosevelt & the Four Freedoms is the first comprehensive traveling exhibition devoted to Rockwell’s iconic depictions of Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms: Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Want, and Freedom from Fear. This exhibition provides a rare opportunity to see the Four Freedoms paintings together in addition to other works by Rockwell and his contemporaries alongside immersive interactive digital displays and virtual-reality technology.

Note: This exhibit contains depictions of war, social injustice and contemporary political themes.

This offer is FREE to members and limited to those covered on your Henry Ford membership level. Show membership card at the entrance of The Gallery by General Motors.
