Laura Heim’s watercolor Leading to Light has been selected as a finalist in the 2019 Sketch 4 Freedom contest. The image captures the contest’s theme, Shadow & Light, and offers an implicit comment upon the legacy of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Leading to Light depicts the stairs at the entrance to the Louis Kahn designed memorial. Beyond is the plinth engraved with FDR’s “Four Freedoms” speech. In the distance, the United Nations, another part of FDR’s legacy, stands out in the Manhattan skyline below the afternoon sun.
