The inaugural art exhibition titled Freedom: Art as the Messenger showcasing works by artists from around the country on the meanings of freedom in different media will remain on display at the Cato Institute through June 14.
“Freedom means something different to every person, yet its value is a common bond between Americans. In these polarized times, Freedom: Art as the Messenger aims to provide a unifying platform of civility and creativity. Artists from across the country–in a wide range of media–share innovative and thought-provoking perspectives on freedom and the enduring need for its protection,” says the exhibit brief.

The exhibition that has been on display since April 11 is free and open to the public. It features artists whose works in different mediums and interpretations try to address the concepts of freedom from various points of view.
“We are living in an era where people are finding their combative voice but having little conversation or dialogue. The goal of this exhibition is to provide a medium for that conversation,” the exhibition brief adds.
Curated by Harriet Lesser and June Linowitz, the exhibition promises to showcase all investigative approaches drawn in various media, including 2-D, 3-D, audio, and videos.
As a public policy research organization, the Cato Institute is dedicated to the principles of individual liberty, limited government, free markets, and peace.
