Charles Freeman, served as guest curator and exhibit designer for New York City's OCEAN LINER MUSEUM, (now assimilated under the South Street Seaport Museum).   


The legendary 1930's French Art Deco ocean liner, S.S. NORMANDIE, was celebrated with a 50th Anniversary Exhibition at the French Embassy in New York (Le Consulat Général de France - Service Culturel, 972 5th Ave).  The traveling exhibit was next hosted in Florida at Miami's BASS MUSEUM OF ART.  


Charles also served as guest curator and exhibit designer for "CUNARD SESQUICENTENNIAL" - a 150th Anniversary Exhibition of Cunard Line's distinguished passenger steamship history, hosted by FORBES GALLERIES (62 Fifth Ave).


"HOMMAGE AU NORMANDIE" has been regarded as the largest museum exhibition of S.S. NORMANDIE artifacts ever assembled, according to the NEW YORKER MAGAZINE. 200 artifacts (including paintings, sculpture and original furnishings, circa 1932-39) were on loan from 46 international lenders, including New York's METROPOLITAN MUSEUM of ART.


Charles' hand-pulled serigraph design for the S.S. NORMANDIE's anniversary limited-edition print (seen below) was featured in "WHAT'S HOT" in NEW YORK MAGAZINE.
