Chrysler Gallery Talks: For Freedoms*

In anticipation of the 2018 elections, and in hoping to encourage broader participation in the arts and in civil society, the Chrysler Museum of Art presents a series of Gallery Talks inspired by Norman Rockwell's 1941 Four Freedoms paintings.

Founded by Hank Willis Thomas and Eric Gottesman, The For Freedoms Federation uses art as a vehicle to build greater participation in American democracy.

*The Gallery Talks are held at the Chrysler Museum of Art, One Memorial Place, Norfolk, VA 23510
