In his 1941 State of the Union address, President Franklin D. Roosevelt outlined what became known as the "Four Freedoms": freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear. To represent these ideals, Norman Rockwell created paintings which became highly successful promotional posters for World War II war bonds. George Washington University Museum director and art historian John Wetenhall led a tour of a Norman Rockwell Museum traveling exhibit which explores these paintings, Rockwell’s career, the 75th anniversary of World War II, and contemporary works by artists reinterpreting the Four Freedoms. close
