All of it is meant to support the vision of the Center’s founder and namesake, John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Man’s achievements of the spirit, in science, and in industry are stressed, mainly in allegorical ways. Join Phil Desiere to learn about the Center’s famous and not-so famous artworks and how they emphasize the importance of education, wisdom, and international trade.
