In the Spring of 2012 Gina Pollara, Executive Director, asked Deborah Freedman to create a series of prints based on the Four Freedoms.
“I became totally immersed in the life and landscape of FDR – looking for references to the Four Freedoms. Visiting Hyde Park was a revelation to me. Growing up in such a deeply nurturing environment must have infused the President with the principles that freedom from want and fear are essential human rights and how blessed we are to have freedoms of speech and religion as well."
These first eight monoprints are an homage both to FDR’s grand idea and Louis Kahn’s dream of honoring him.
