Early this year, FDR Four Freedoms Park played host to a photo contest emphasizing ideals laid out by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt as World War II in Europe threatened to draw the country into the bloody turmoil. Winning entries were shown in the Park in June. On Saturday evening, the Park Conservancy's CEO Howard Axel brought the show to Main Street in a reception at Gallery RIVAA.
