The Freedman, 1863
Join us in celebrating the bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln’s birthday by attending this evening’s special Gallery Talk Abraham Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation. During the discussion, Dr. Steven Woodworth, professor of history, Texas Christian University, and Rebecca Lawton, curator of paintings and sculpture, Amon Carter Museum, will talk about the Emancipation Proclamation and how it relates to the museum’s landmark sculpture The Freedman (1863) by John Quincy Adams Ward.
This program was made possible in part with a grant from Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
