This event is funded in part by a Humanities New York Action Grant with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities. This public event and accompanying exhibition is made in partnership with For Freedoms, an organization devoted to inclusive civic participation through the arts that originally was inspired by American artist Norman Rockwell’s paintings of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms (1941): freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear.

This event is associated with the exhibition currently on view in the Charles P. Sifton Gallery at the Courthouse, which will be open until February 15th, 2019.
