On Display in the Walker Library

The University is celebrating Constitution Day on Friday, September 17, 2010. A number of activities are planned all week sponsored by the MTSU American Democracy Project.

The Walker Library has on display some posters that highlight four freedoms: freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from fear, and freedom from want. Some of the posters reinterpret Norman Rockwell's original paintings which responded to President Roosevelt's "Four Freedoms" speech in 1941. This project came out of the donation of Rockwell's original works to The Wolfsonian Museum at Florida International University.

The Walker Library is also participating in the celebration by having students print the 14th amendment on the Library's replica 18th century printing press.
