"Voices Of Freedom" is a series of 4 paintings by Chicago area Pop Artist Randal Huiskens. Each painting is 30 inches wide by 40 inches tall, with a stretcher depth of 1.5 inches. Displayed together, with a 10 inch division between each canvas, the entire width would be approximately 150 inches. The canvases may be displayed together, or exhibited within close proximity of each other, in seprate spaces and/or walls within one room.

The subject honors 4 great historical figures whose words and deeds both saved lives and inspired others to greatness. It is hoped that the inclusion of this series in this year's ArtPrize exhibition inspires a dialogue and sparks educational interest in the origins of the civil rights struggle in our country.
