Portraits of Freedom: Pops Peterson’s Reimagining Rockwell (Online)

TBE’s Commemoration of MLK’s Legacy

Join the RJI as we commemorate the legacy of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with a special program featuring Pops Peterson and his exquisite art. On the 75th anniversary of Norman Rockwell’s iconic 1943 “Four Freedoms” series, a national exhibition tour also included a companion exhibit, “The Four Freedoms Reimagined.”  Pops was one of 39 world-wide artists recognized for his interpretation of the “Four Freedoms Reimagined”, continuing his decade-long reinventing of Norman Rockwell’s famous images.  A combination of photography and digital painting techniques lends itself to powerful portraits that Pops will share with us (among other works also!). This evening will be a tribute to the shared values espoused by Dr. King and Judaism: justice, equality, human dignity, and b’tzelem Elohim, “in the image of God.”
