    Enduring Ideals: Rockwell, Roosevelt & the Four Freedoms

February 13, 2019–April 29, 2019

Norman Rockwell’s masterpieces make their way to Washington as part of a major international traveling exhibition on the Four Freedoms famously outlined by Franklin D. Roosevelt: freedom of speech; freedom of worship; freedom from want; and freedom from fear. In Enduring Ideals, Rockwell’s iconic paintings and works by other artists capture expressions of freedom from World War II to today. 

Enduring Ideals: Rockwell, Roosevelt & the Four Freedoms has been organized by Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. It is accompanied by a fully-illustrated catalogue and  teaching resources for grades K–12.

Docents lead free walk-in tours of the galleries on Saturdays and Sundays at 1:30 p.m. You can also register online for a private tour of the exhibition for groups of six to forty people.
