Freedom Fighters

September 30 – December 16

Throughout history, countless freedom fighters in the realms of civil and human rights have risen to great accomplishments despite facing adversity or being born into troubling circumstances. These individuals have demonstrated remarkable resilience and determination in their pursuit of justice and social reforms, leaving an indelible impact on society.

Born into a world that often denied vast members of the public basic rights and freedoms, these brave individuals refused to accept the status quo. They challenged oppressive systems and fought discrimination, inequality and injustice.

Their accomplishments serve as a reminder that no matter the obstacles we face, we have the capacity to effect change and make a difference.

Their stories are a testament to the power of the human spirit and that is what inspired me to paint them. By following in their footsteps, we continue to advance the cause of freedom and equality, creating a better world for future generations.    — Nancy Cartwright

About the Artist

As an Emmy Award-winning voice actor, world-renowned as the voice of Bart Simpson and dozens of other animated characters, Nancy Cartwright has entertained audiences for decades with her incredible range and versatility.

In addition to being one of the top female voice actors in the industry, Cartwright has emerged as a fine artist, both as a sculptor and a painter.

She has created dozens of reverse-style paintings on Lucite, a technique that dates back thousands of years. Her love of animation motivated her to duplicate this age-old technique that was popularized in 1937, with Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Much of Cartwright’s artwork is animated in nature and inspired by Picasso and Warhol. Her use of vibrant color in creating colorful pop art, spans a variety of collections ranging from spotlighting societal issues, to her love of animated characters, to a myriad of historical freedom fighters. Her work has been featured in numerous galleries and exhibitions, and one of her many sculptures, a bronze creation of Bart Simpson, is prominently featured in front of News Corp in Midtown Manhattan.  Another version is on display at the USC School of Cinematic Arts.

With a wide array of subject matter and forms, Cartwright says there is always one theme she seeks to imbue into her work, that is simply to do her part to help brighten the world, “If I can inspire or educate someone by what I create, then I feel that I have done my job as an artist.”
