For Freedoms

For Freedoms (forfreedoms.org) is a platform for creative civic engagement, discourse, and direct action. Inspired by American artist Norman Rockwell’s paintings of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms (1941)—freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear—For Freedoms’ exhibitions, installations, and public programs use art to deepen public discussions on civic issues and core values, and to advocate for equality, dialogue, and civic participation. For Freedoms aims to inject anti-partisan, critical thinking that fine art requires, into the political landscape through programming, and public artworks.  

A For Freedoms town hall on the subject of “Freedom to Create’” took place on December 7, 2018. Panelists included artist Justin Brice Guariglia (The Betsy’s Artist in Residence for Miami Art Week 2018).  

We invite you to join the conversation about why art and artists matter. Please visit forfreedoms.org for more information.
