ZINC contemporary and Holly Ballard Martz have partnered with For Freedoms, a platform for greater participation in the arts and in civil society. For Freedoms and it’s partners produce exhibitions, installations, public programs, and billboard campaigns to advocate for inclusive civic participation. 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 Federation uses art to encourage and deepen public explorations of freedom in the 21st century. Founded by Hank Willis Thomas and Eric Gottesman, For Freedoms Federation encourages new forms of critical discourse. Our mission is to use art as a vehicle to build greater participation in American Democracy.
Join us for the closing of this very poignant exhibition.
