The enduring relevance of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s 1941 “Four Freedoms” address— invoking freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear—is explored in an exhibition of artworks drawn from Sheldon’s permanent holdings and those of private collections. This exhibition in the Charlotte & Charles Rain Gallery is part of the 50 State Initiative, a nonpartisan project organized by the artist-run For Freedoms Federation to advance art as a means of inspiring civic participation throughout the US.
