Join us at the New-York Historical society on a tour, led by curator Dr. Wendy Ikemoto (Stanford '02), of Rockwell, Roosevelt & the Four Freedoms. Organized by the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, the exhibition showcases Rockwell’s depictions of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms: Freedom of SpeechFreedom of WorshipFreedom from Fear, and Freedom from Want. It illuminates the historical context for these now-iconic images and explores how Rockwell’s 1943 paintings united the public behind the president’s wartime call for the defense of freedom. The show concludes with a powerful examination of freedom's legacy. 

The tour will last approximately one hour and is limited to 25 people.  The fee is a special Stanford group rate and includes admission to the entire museum for the rest of the day.     

Wendy Ikemoto earned her BA in Art History at Stanford University and her PhD in the History of Art and Architecture at Harvard University. Before joining the New-York Historical Society, she worked in academia at The Courtauld Institute of Art in London and Vassar College and in secondary education at a school for Native Hawaiian students. Her publications include Antebellum American Pendant Paintings: New Ways of Looking (Routledge 2017) and a children's book called Millary Blinpin, Politician (Water Wave Productions 2017).
