Rights! Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Aren't we all entitled to that?
In 1948, the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which was drafted by a committee chaired by Eleanor Roosevelt. It delineated the rights to which all humans in all countries should be entitled. This poignant and timely collection is about our human rights, the groups who've been denied them, the heroes who've fought for them, as well as the events that drew the attention of news media and the public. Forty-seven artists from six countries tell those stories and some personal ones as well.
This exhibition is a visual reminder of the words of Franklin Delano Roosevelt etched next to the sculpture of Eleanor Roosevelt: “The structure of world peace cannot be the work of one man, or one party, or one nation…it must be a peace which rests on the cooperative effort of the whole world.”
This exhibit will be here until September 8th, 2020.
