Norman Rockwell's Four Freedoms Coming to GW Textile Museum Spring of 2019

Norman Rockwell's Four Freedoms will be on display at GWU at the textile museum in the spring of 2019. This could be a great opportunity for students to think about a variety of topics-art, civic engagement, political science, sociology, economics. Think about adding an exhibit visit or readings about Rockwell and the political events that inspired project to your Spring 2019 syllabus.
